Welcome


Nuke-City Veg is a small backyard garden, servicing restaurants, and a weekly market in downtown Amarillo. I'm Danny Melius, the gardener here at Nuke-City Veg.

 The summer has started at Nuke-City! We are now up and running on all 32 beds in the front and back yards. Along with our Gourmet Salad and Mesclun Mixes, we are also growing Mustard Greens, Collard Greens, Easter Egg Radishes, and Scarlett Nantes Carrots. Our Katrina Cucumbers and Patty Pan Squash are coming along, as well as our Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes. We're finally seeing blooms on our Brandywine Tomatoes, Lunchbox Bell Peppers, and Jalapeños so our CSA, Market, and Restaurant customers be on the look-out!

Our season at the Amarillo Community Market is also in full swing! Make sure to find us every Saturday, downtown Amarillo at 10th and Polk for the entire summer for your farm fresh veggies!

About Us


About Us


Gardener: Danny Melius

I started gardening a couple years ago.  The first year didn't go very well but last year was pretty good for still not knowing much about gardening and growing plants.  I have been inspired by Joel Salatin and Curtis Stone to expand my garden from 30 sqft to 400 sqft.  I feel that its important to be connected to the food that my family and I eat, thats where the garden comes in.  I will be attempting to implement, on a small scale, what Curtis Stone does in British Columbia, cultivating fast growing nutritious foods on a small piece of land.  He has been able to grow of $100,000 of food on 1/3 of an acre of land, that he doesn't own.  Aside from the food aspect, I want to teach my son, age 10 , that your hard work pays off and you get back what you put in. A garden is perfect for that and you get yummy, healthy vegetables.
