Any North Dakota/Minnesota Gardeners?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I live in North Dakota, raise chickens, beekeeping, and most of all.....Gardening.

 

I was wondering if we had any North Dakotan's/Minnesotan's on this site who wouldn't mind sharing what they are doing in their gardens, coops, and if anyone does have bees, sharing where you are getting them from and sharing what you are doing with them.... Just pretty much post everything of what you are doing in the coop, garden, and apiary!

 

This is not just a garden site!!!

We can talk about ANYTHING!!!

I lived in North Dakota last year. I planted a very small Garden the May my husband and I moved there. We had better boy tomatoes (bad choice - only harvested 12 tomatoes in August granted they were delicious), peas, green beans and strawberries.
Was it a bad winter this year? I sure miss ND summers! Hope this helps kick off your post.

I'm in Minnesota! I started a cherry tomato plant in a cup and it sprouted yesterday. We are waiting to plant the whole garden until frost is over.

                            2 Mixed Ducks, 15 Pigeons, and 5 Ducklings! I'm Chicken Free!!!!!!!!!!

We were up in Williston. Have you ever tried a spring crop of califlower? I just found out it can be very persnickety about warm temperature so the stuff I planted down here in California might button (make a mini head) and then die. hmm.png It prefers temps no warmer than 75 and cool soil. Sounded perfect for ND to me 😃
