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.

You get some pretty fierce winters of your own so I guess it is no surprise the gardens would look alike.
