It can be a real challenge to garden in Routt County but the results can be amazing. Cooperative Extension and our team of Master Gardener Volunteers are here to help you come up with creative strategies to become a successful gardener despite the small number of frost-free days (59 days), low average temperature (39 degrees), and high elevation (above 6,500 feet). Our Agents and Master Gardner Volunteers are here to answer your questions, like what’s bugging your beans, or which trees grow best here or when can I expect the first fall frost?
