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.

You should have a bit warmer weather than us although we are blessed with a Japanese current where I live right on the coast of the inlet to the Port of Anchorage. It was fun writing it and even more fun looking for pictures to go with it. It sort of wrote it self in pictures.
