Do you have community garden guidelines?

Extension is working with our local food council in establishing a "community" garden with our local nursing home. We would like to write up guidelines for the care of the gardens and an understanding that if the nursing home does not maintain the gardens then they will come back to the food council. The garden beds are all portable. Do you have any guidelines for writing an agreement and understanding of how the gardens will be managed?

Zoning Administrator Vs. Landowner rights

Does a zoning administrator have the right to enter my property after I obtain a land use permit? My zoning administrator basically thinks he has a free pass to "investigate" my property. What if I tell him that he doesn't have permission to be on my property and hes trespassing?

Confusing roundup concentration

The MSU article about mixing roundup is wrong and misleading. I'm an analytical chemist and cant interpret the gibberish. I expect more from msu. Read it yourself and tell me how much of a 41% solution of roundup to add per gallon for generic weed control..

Micro sprinklers for frost protection in orchards

Hello, last fall I asked a question about how to protect orchards from spring frost and I decided to experiment with micro sprinklers for this spring. I have searched the internet and I can't seem to find the answers I am looking for. I understand the principles and how they work but I don't understand how to do it. For starters, I cant find what type of sprinkler I should buy. What type of sprinklers to professional orchards use and where do I buy them? Once I have them do I set them under the tree or in the tree? I'd like some that are somewhat water efficient since I have a lot of trees. I need some help with general information and any resources or things I overlooked would be great! Thanks!

cold spring and fruit trees

Hello, recently it was warm enough to get the sap moving in the trees but the last week or two we have been experiencing cold weather. The temperature has been dropping to about 15 degrees for at least the last week and this morning it even got to 2 degrees. I haven't noticed any bud development or anything, but just the initial stages of fruit trees coming out of dormancy. Will this weather adversely effect fruit production in apples, pears, plums, peaches? I would assume apples and pears might be ok but wasn't sure about plums and peaches. Thanks!
