University of Minnesota Test Gardens

We pass by the University of Minnesota's test fields pretty regularly. I love to see the fields of corn and soybeans right here at the edge of the city.
Less obvious are the smaller scale vegetable and flower trail gardens, that brighten up the roadway near the horticultural buildings on campus. I've heard about these for years, but never stopped to actually spend some time wandering among them before today.
I'm surprised how poorly tended some of the gardens are, but they are still lovely, with plenty of flowers and a few song birds. 

 
It's a nice place to wander through if you are in the area.

The University of Minnesota's Display and Trial Gardens are open to the public at all times. 
Metered parking is available in a small lot near the gardens.
