UMN Extension Small Farms Newsletter - May 2017

How muddy are your boots? The 2017 growing season is up and running, in fits and starts.   Either way, it's happening, and I have a few select resources, specifically for vegetable producers, to help along the way; some tools and ideas for  diagnosing and managing the pest and disease issues  you may encounter this season (more simply put, vegetable IPM).   I'm also sharing some educational opportunities for  beekeepers and cottage food producers , plus some new resources related to  policy and sale of local produce and meat . Plus,  I could use your help!   Please consider responding to a (seriously) short survey, especially if you market local food or  want  to market local food.  It will help guide and improve a project in development.
