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.

Finally, I see some raised beds that I truly like! I love the size of them. Being able to cover them with hoops is another plus. Thanks for sharing your photos.

My pleasure. I like the fact that they are taller so I don't have to crawl around them.
