cover crops for no-till gardening

i read your cover crops article: https://extension.umn.edu/how-manage-soil-and-nutrients-home-gardens/cover-crops-and-green-manures but it says to turn them under—isn’t it better not to till our break up the soil? just more our trim them and use a hole digger to plant?

Potato disease/condition?

Dear Sir!
I grow potatoes near Herman, MN, in my family garden. Attached are some photos of Red Pontiac potatoes with holes/pits in them. I'm not certain I can discern whether this is a chewing bug problem or some disease problem. One interesting thing is that Yukon Gold potatoes that were in adjacent rows (or even occasionally adjacent plants) did not seem to be affected at all.

If this is disease, is it something in the soil, or peculiar to the potato? What are the chances the seed potatoes I purchased were already "carriers" and then it showed up in my crop?

Thanks for your help!!

I have a client that is wanting some native grasses planted. He is wanting a mixture of smaller in height grasses with little blue grass in with it. From my understanding that the best time to plant this grass seed is in the spring. Can this grass seed be also dormant seeded in the fall?? What is your recommendation?? Thanks For your help, Stacy McGee Gro Green Lawn Care

Thorny bush

We have these bushes growing everywhere. At first I thought they were goosberries, but they are not. Spread like crazy and full of thorns. What is this?

I saw the Isanti Dogwood bush at the arboretum and would like to purchase some. Do you know where they are available? We will be planting them in Grant County but can easily purchase them in the Twin Cities.

We are replacing a very old Buckthorn hedge. Do we need to add to the soil?

Thank you, Cheryl Barsness
