  • BUSINESS BEAT: High Country Pizza is all about the pie

    It’s a good thing the owners of the new pizzeria in Kittredge really like pizza.

    They say they eat pizza all the time, mostly at their Colorado High Country Pizza restaurant, but sometimes when co-owner Steve Abbott goes home after a long day of throwing pizza dough, slathering on sauce, sprinkling the cheese and adding the toppings, he orders out pizza.

    Now that’s pizza dedication.

    “It’s important to the community,” he said.

  • Time for planting

    People love growing tomatoes and peppers, says Kittredge gardener Tina Kellogg. However, at high altitudes such as Evergreen where the growing season is short, it’s advisable to get a head start by starting seedlings indoors, she says.

    Even short-season varieties of tomatoes need to be seedlings before they are transplanted into a garden, Kellogg explains.
