HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- With all of the recent rain, it is certainly putting a damper on backyard gardens.
Worse than that, some of your vegetables can even be dangerous to eat after a flood.
If your garden was flooded and if you have underground potatoes, onions, carrots, or radishes, it is highly recommended through the extension services and state universities that you do not consume any of the product in your garden.
That's because there's a danger of contamination from bacteria such as E. coli from the flood waters.
WSAZ.com green thumb expert John Marra says there's still plenty of time to replant many crops such as tomatoes and corn. Cold crops such as cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage could be replanted in fall.
If you do replant, it'll obviously take some time to reap what you sow. In the meantime, though, local growers soon will be making the rounds at farmer's markets all over the region.
