My Alaska Life
Jeff tilled the garden again and then made rows to plant in. We planted potatoes, cabbage, turnips, broccoli, beans and peas, fennel, swiss chard, kale – all things we’ve been pretty successful with in the past. Then I had a little room left so I tried some 55 day cucumber and some cauliflower. Oh and we tried beets again though we haven’t had much success in the past. I like to try new things every year and occasionally I find things that work well like fennel and kohlrabi. Plants have to grow pretty fast as we don’t have very long summers. I also planted lots of flower bulbs and sunflower seeds. The garden doesn’t look like much now but hopefully by the end of summer it will be lush with lots more than chickweed.
