Free wood chips and compost

Hi, I'm new to the area. I bought a house in Ovid last year and I'm hoping to start a no dig garden if we ever get out of quarantine. Any suggestions of where I might find free wood chips or compost in the area? Thanks, Rick

Rain and planting seeds

With the rain keeping soil wet I do not know whether I should just plant my seeds in the ground in the rain or wait until the soil is a little dryer. Do I go ahead and plant now or wait till the ground is drier?

Clumps in Soil

Hello! I got lots of these clumps in my garden box when I try to work the soil. I planted some cover crops in the Fall and these looks like some of the roots clumps. Are these beneficial or should I try to get rid of them?

What's eating our plum tree leaves?

We had birds eating out tomato plants last week. We put bird netting over them and they are growing back. We are putting out a motion sensor camera to see if it is birds eating the new green leaves on our plum trees. There doesn't appear to be any evidence of insects. I attached pics.

What is this moss?

I have found a few clumps of this mossy ground cover in our garden area. It’s very low growing and looks like it may get tiny whitish flowers on it. What is it? Thanks so much!!

What Insect is this

Found this one coming up the driveway today, inches from the garage. It's starting to get a bit annoyed with the photo shoot, but otherwise seems docile. The stick measures 3/4 inch from tip to the crotch. We are in Eagan, MN 55123.

Growing wine grapes in a pot?

Good afternoon, I am interested in starting some wine grapes. I’m thinking of planting them in a pot for the first year so that if I move in the near future I don’t leave behind my hard work. Is this a good idea, at least for year 1? Best, David
