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 Bonnie. Like a lot of gardeners here, I post pictures of single blooms or an entire plant, but rarely broad views of the yard and beds. May have to do that one of these days when everything is lush and blooming.
