This publication is a compilation of vegetable variety trial notes from field trials conducted at the Oregon State University vegetable farm in Corvallis, Oregon. It contains information on a wide variety of vegetables and focuses on quality characteristics and adaptability to western Oregon.
The mild, wet winters in western Oregon encourage the growth of lawn mosses. This publication describes the factors that contribute to this growth and provides tips for reducing problems. It is a companion to OSU Extension video EM 9176.
I have a small garden plot that I have let go fallow over the summer, but would like to plant something to keep the weeds down until next year. Most of the cover crops I read about look a lot like the invasive weeds I'm always pulling! What should I plant that can be easily tilled into the soil for planting next spring?
What type of apple and cherry would you recommend for eating rather than cooking. Any suggestions for protecting fruit from deer and birds? I live at about 1,000 feet, above Sodaville. I also want to plant blueberry bushes, an early, mid-season and late variety. Which ones would do best?
