In northern Minnesota you can grow a wide variety of both fruits and vegetables. We may not have some of those delicious tropical plants to provide for us, but we can grow things like grapes, numerous kinds of berries, plums and even pears.
We have several gardens for both fruits and vegetables. I love to incorporate several varieties of herbs throughout rows of both perennial and annual vegetables and I have also planted several berry shrubs, grape vines and fruit trees. I love to try new veggie and fruit varieties each year and in recent years I have experimented with kohlrabi, brussel sprouts, blue potatoes, honeyberries and grapes. Just this year I have added sun chokes, choke cherries, hazelnuts and two more apple tree varieties. I previously had Sweet 16, and Goodland apples. This year I have added Gravenstein, and Norland apples, and I look forward to adding several more varieties.
