Pushing the Zone in Alaska

By Oberon46
February 22, 2015

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.

That's a great use of your space, Mary. You have figured out a way to overcome a good bit of Anchorage's (growing) deficiencies. Way to do.

Thanks Ken. It is still an uphill learning process but I really enjoy it. Even the failures teach me something. Usually that I am too impatient, don't pay enough attention to what I read. To say nothing of follow thru. But onward and upward.
