Pushing the Zone in Alaska

By Oberon46

Anchorage, Alaska, has a pretty short growing season, which is cool (55-65 F) and tends to be overcast much of the time. So, having a greenhouse would be great. Not having enough room for one on my urban lot, I fortunately discovered raised beds, and to extend the season, hoop beds. Hope you will enjoy my journey into new gardening worlds.

Congrats on successful fruitation (especially the apple) of what I'd consider a daunting project.
Innovative, and impressive.

Thanks. It was a wonderfully exciting project and I spent every day out there with the crew, even hauling rocks (which about gave the poor guys apoplexy until they realized that I love the work and only undertook what I could do. And had no problem playing 'step 'n fetchit' for them.
