Many of us have certainly been thrown a curve ball with the recent flooding.
I know three community gardens in our Extension district have gone totally underwater. So that brings the question how safe is the produce from gardens affected by flood water? The following information is from Extension resource material.
Because we do not know where precisely the flood water has been (in a lagoon, across an animal feeding facility, a sewage treatment plant, etc.), consuming produce that has been exposed to flood water is dangerous. The safest approach is to discard garden crops that have been in contact with such water.
