Notes:
Located in Hiawatha, Iowa, north of Cedar Rapids, Minney's is a traditional Iowa vegetable garden with some flowers. This type of garden was once very common across the state (Minney's has been under cultivation since 1956), but is no longer easy to find. The main vegetable garden is 90 x 55 feet. Plantings include green and yellow (wax) beans, snap and little marble peas, cabbage, peppers, eggplant, kohlrabi, garlic, onions, potatoes, beets, tomatoes, squash, sweet corn, cucumbers, and Peruvian lilies. There are also separate plantings of peonies and rhubarb, and occasional plantings of canteloupe and watermelon.
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, garden plans, and a recipe for "red pickles."
