If you make a trip to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
, be sure to stop by the Summer House, a hybrid (sorry!) farmers' market, garden shop, and gift store that sells plants (lots of fruit trees), seeds, gardening tools, plus local meats and cheeses. Fresh produce, supplied by local farmers (including some from the home gardens of arboretum employees) should arrive next week, starting with rhubarb, and shortly after, greens and asparagus.
The Summer House is located just past the arboretum's entrance at Highway 5 and Rolling Acres Road and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
