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.

Thanks Linda. It was definitely a labor of love and only the beginning of a long learning process.
