Gardener Job in Denver, Colorado

My name's Michelle and I'm looking for someone to care for my small vegetable and herb garden in Denver while I am out of town for probably about 10 days to handle some family business. I don't have dates yet, but would be leaving anywhere from a few days from now to a couple of weeks.

The garden is 8 feet by 8 feet, all planters and containers. I also recently reseeded a patch of grass right next to the garden, also about 8'x8', that would appreciate daily watering as well. I'm not a gardening expert, and not expecting miracles for any plants I may have already doomed, like the brussels sprouts I started way too late. I just want to avoid everything dying of thirst & neglect while I am away.

Plants include established perennial herbs strawberries; new annual herb starts; annual herbs and greens that I direct-sowed from seed and are mostly still very tiny; some spring bulbs that are all done but still want water while their greenery dies back; some veggie seedlings that are still indoors under lights for now; and probably by the time I leave town I'll have put in my beans.

If this sounds like something you could help with, please let me know what would be your rates? And how would we get started--would you come over and let me give you the grand tour? Please be aware that I will be wearing a mask and standing 6 feet away and will require the same of you... if I'm going to go so far as to drive all the way to the East Coast and back to avoid getting on a plane, it would be a very cruel irony if I caught the virus from an asymptomatic carrier standing in my back yard! 😬
