Master Gardeners

  • Using Cover Crops: Species Selection for Gardens
    Even in Minnesota, there are quite a few cover crop species for you to choose, each with their own pros and cons. To narrow your possible choices, it is incredibly important to know the needs of your garden.
  • Using Cover Crops: A History of Green Manure
    Grown primarily for improving the land rather than harvest, cover crops (aka “green manures”) have been in use by humans for longer than you might have imagined.
  • The Ladybugs Return!
    These insects—while key in helping our local farmers control aphids—plague us in our homes. What you may not know, is that these beetles are not just a biting, stinking nuisance, but have real negative effects on our environment and even our wine!
