The January and February editions of Northern Gardening explored the best vegetable varieties for Northeastern Minnesota. 

Last year many seed varieties were sold out early or reserved for farmers so that when local gardeners went to local sources for seeds, they were pretty surprised to find them unavailable. So this month, we are delighted to talk about vegetable varieties that are ‘tried and true’ for our area with a number of local market gardeners from St. Louis, Lake, and Cook counties - joining the program via Zoom.

Listen to the full programs from both January and February in the audio below.


Northern Gardening airs the second Thursday of the month at 7 pm and is rebroadcast the following Saturday at 6 am. You can send any gardening questions to, or call her at (218)-387-3015, to have your question answered during future Northern Gardening programs.  Previous editions of Northern Gardening can be found here.
