Grow Up to 30% More Healthy Food, 3x Faster
Using aeroponics—the same technology NASA uses—Tower Garden grows plants with only water and nutrients rather than dirt. Research has found aeroponic systems grow plants three times faster and produce 30% greater yields on average. That means you’ll be enjoying abundant, nutritious harvests just weeks after planting. #vegan, #vegetarian, #urbanfarming, #mastergardeners, #freshveggies, #nongmo, #growyourownfood, #veganchef, #backporchgarden

We are celebrating the URI Master Gardeners today for another great season out at Prescott Farm! Because of their hard work, we were able to donate approximately 675 pounds of produce to Lucy's Hearth this year! Pictured is Master Gardener, Dermot Hayes, harvesting garlic to share with friends in the community.

The Master Gardeners of Billings are such an amazing organization and they graciously put on lots of wonderful programs at the library. Last week they came and did a program on dried flower arranging for kids.

One of the participants is shown here with his awesome dried flower arrangement!  This 6 year old was so excited when he heard about the program that he wanted to sign up right away. Thank you, Master Gardeners, for another great event! 🌺💐🌼 #billingsmt #billingslibrary #billingspubliclibrary #mastergardeners #mtlibraries

This is a great time of year to get to work removing invasive woody trees and shrubs from your landscape.

Solutions

1. Cut invasive plants to the ground
2. Apply a recommended herbicide to the bark or cut-stump

Pictured: Burning Bush (Euonymus alatus)

Common invasive woody plants in New Hampshire: : Norway maple (Acer platanoides), Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima), Japanese barberry (Berberis thunbergii), European barberry (Berberis vulgaris), Autumn olive (Elaeagnus umbellata), Tartanian honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica), Common buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica), and Glossy buckthorn (Ramnus frangula). For more information and recommendations, review these management guidelines from the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture:

Chamaecrista fasciculata (partridge pea) in the first year of a meadow. A.k.a. "sensitive" pea because the leaflets sometimes fold into themselves when brushed. Can grow 1-3' tall dense stands on disturbed lands. Nitrogen fixer of the Fabaceae/Leguminosae family, excellent for erosion control, annual that reseeds and spreads, but lets other plants and wildflowers do their thing. Beloved by bees, butterflies, creatures small enough to fit under the stands, and browsing deer. #partridgepea #chamaecristafasciculata #mastergardener #mastergardeners #nativeplants #nativewildflowers #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #weloveplants #pollinator #pollinators

Friends, it is that time of year again. We have rooted in the garden all summer and now is the downtime between the gardening season and the arrival of seed catalogs. Don't plant yourself in the recliner just yet, make sure to clean your tools and store away gardening equipment properly. You can read up on how to keep your tools in good shape in this article by Sandra Mason.

There's still time to protect your landscape from harsh winter weather and all that comes with it. This is the first of several posts on common challenges for New Hampshire homeowners and what you can do right now to protect your landscape from costly damage.

Part 1: Voles

Challenge: Once there is snow on the ground, voles can cause a tremendous amount of damage to newly planted trees and shrubs by feeding on the roots and bark or girdling woody plants.

Solutions:

a) Eliminate the weeds, ground cover, and leaf litter immediately surrounding the base of your trees.
b) Place guards around the base of your trees to prevent girdling. Form a cylinder of galvanized hardware cloth (1/4'') around the trunk, leaving room for ~5 years of growth.
c) If you do see damage to your plants from animals, give the Info Line a call and we'll help you identify the animal and come up with solutions.

For information on pesky winter critters, consult this fact sheet by Margaret Hagen, Extension Agriculture Resources Educator 
Emeritus: https://extension.unh.edu/resources/files/Resource000875_Rep921.pdf

This beautiful mural 👩🏻‍🎨 overlooks one of the gardens maintained by the Master Gardeners here in Virginia Beach. I am finishing my classes this week and graduate from trainee to intern. I have to get in 50 hours of volunteering to graduate to full Master Gardener. It’s incredibly intense and interesting and eye opening. It’s all a ton more complicated than I ever imagined. Hoping I get to work in this garden space when it all settles out. It’s close to home and has everything I am most passionate about when it comes to gardens and wildlife. 🦊🌱

Our “Cool Shade for the Third Grade” program educates students on the importance of trees, and, because each third grader receives a tree of their own to plant and care for, it helps reinforce individual investment in good land stewardship.

DCMGA members were busy participating in various community projects for Make A Difference Day and National Planting Day. 
From prairie preservation at The Flower Mound to propagating native Little Blue Stem grass and educating the public about endangered prairie ecosystems at LLELA (Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area) to Hugelkultur installation at the Coppell community garden, we covered the county and surrounding areas today.

If you participated in a gardening-related project this weekend--even at your own home--let us know in the comments. Great ideas should be shared to everyone in our community.

Venus flytraps are delicate and deadly.
For #Halloween, here are some fun facts about this carnivorous plant.
Why is it carnivorous?
Most carnivorous plants grow in wet, boggy areas that tend to be acidic and very low in nutrients for adequate plant growth. These plants have adapted by developing special features for feeding on insects and other small animals. This way, they can grow where other plants can’t.

Venus flytrap:
*Is named after Diana, the Greek goddess of love and beauty (Dionaea muscipula).
*Uses its leaves or “jaws” to trap insects.
*Lures prey with sweet-smelling nectar.
*Has leaves or “jaws” that snap shut quickly after being triggered by tiny hairs.
*Secretes an enzyme that dissolves the body of the caught insect, which becomes nutrients for the plant.
*Consumes 2-3 flies each month. *Is native to southeastern U.S. 
To grow your own, plant a Venus flytrap in sphagnum peat moss, not potting soil.
This plant likes humidity. A terrarium is ideal.
Water with rainwater or distilled water. Tap or bottled water has chemicals and mineral harmful to this plant.
Place the plant in a spot with at least 6-8 hours of direct full sunlight. (When the plant has enough sun, leaves and veins will turn
red.) 40-watt fluorescent light bulbs set a few inches above the plant can be used to sunlight.
When the leaves turn red, the plant’s hungry and ready to eat!

Most carnivorous plants grow in wet, boggy areas that tend to be acidic and very low in nutrients for adequate plant growth. These plants have adapted by developing special features for feeding on insects and other small animals. This way, they can grow where other plants can’t. Venus flytrap: *Is named after Diana, the Greek goddess of love and beauty (Dionaea muscipula). *Uses its leaves or “jaws” to trap insects. *Lures prey with sweet-smelling nectar. *Has leaves or “jaws” that snap shut quickly after being triggered by tiny hairs. *Secretes an enzyme that dissolves the body of the caught insect, which becomes nutrients for the plant. *Consumes 2-3 flies each month. *Is native to southeastern U.S. To grow your own, plant a Venus flytrap in sphagnum peat moss, not potting soil. This plant likes humidity. A terrarium is ideal. Water with rainwater or distilled water. Tap or bottled water has chemicals and mineral harmful to this plant. Place the plant in a spot with at least 6-8 hours of direct full sunlight. (When the plant has enough sun, leaves and veins will turn red.) 40-watt fluorescent light bulbs set a few inches above the plant can be used to sunlight. When the leaves turn red, the plant’s hungry and ready to eat!

Here are some fun facts about pumpkins to get you in the fall mood! I hope you enjoy! -Pumpkins are members of the squash family. -Pumpkins are fruits, not vegetables! -They are 90% water. -Pumpkins were once recommended as a cure for freckles. -Pumpkins are not Jack O'Lanterns until they are carved.
