  1. Hi,
    We live in Zumbrota and have a vegetable garden, many flower gardens and a nice lawn. I’m curious and anxious about learning how to maintain these areas better.

    I would love to learn the best method of revitalizing and enriching the garden soil every year to maximize our produce production. We don’t compost. We throw farm fertilizer on the garden in the fall and till it up but I don’t know if that’s the best thing to do every year. We have blight issues and would like to learn more about the best way to deal with it.

    We would like to learn if there are things we can do for the flower beds to enrich those beds every year.

    Our lawn is nice but there are areas that need help. The small front yard has a lg shade tree on it but the grass never gets thick. I’d like to learn how to get such areas more full and healthy. There appears to be different patches of grasses in the yard and I’d like to learn about how to get rid of them and try to get the lawn consistent.

    We’d be interested in local or nearby classes about such things and or good websites and books.
