Colorado is known for extremism, and our weather is no exception, as any gardener knows sometimes all too well. After rains of Biblical proportions hammered the the Mile High City and parts north or south, gardens are waterlogged. That's the least of the worries for many people stranded on islands now in areas such as Lyons, Colorado, or for people evacuated in Commerce City, a part of metro Denver. The storm reminded us once again of the indomitable forces of nature. Beware out there!
If you're lucky enough to have weathered the storm, and you want to attend to your garden, watch for upcoming tips.
On the bright side, Denver feels fresh and power-washed. The clouds are breaking up a bit. The rain boots are by the back door, and the earth is soft and ready for digging. Be safe out there!
