While I am at altitude much of what do bridges across I have a pretty good grow light set up so I can hold my plants inside while they get larger.

My grow set up in my basement can handle tomato plants that are 4 to 5 feet tall but I learned that this makes it difficult to get them acclimated outside before going into the greenhouse that is not heated.

Living in Alaska,I had a hothouse, tomatoes mostly, saladgarden and rhubarb....the chickweed was
wicked.....everyday it was a NEW patch appearing,it was tuff tearing the stuff out and have it back the next day.
Not much of a veggie gardener....but,here ,I am mostly shrubs and flowers....poor soil..claybase, so it is
a challenge....do still have deer wandering thru...sampling and spitting it out... always a challenge. My day
lilies are in need of a dire thinning......with this drought our water bill (MISS MY WELL) is always a shock.

Living in Alaska well I do not know if I could do that except during the growing season.

I was the DBA for my company and we opened up and Environmental Lab there in 1994 I was there for two weeks and did a lot of exploring.

I will say not a lot of the workers there were willing to take me around so I was on my own. The gal I knew from our accounting department was there for the last weekend and we had a blast we took the train to Seward and on the way back to Anchorage we hit every tourist stop and all the people there were so nice.

I few of them fed use some strange Alaskan stuff.

It was fun someday I hope to go back with the hubby.

Let me think....it was summer, so U probably did not get to sample Eskimo ice cream ( whale blubber,blueberries, milk,vanilla (sometimes) and the major ingredient SNOW....if U had Halibut cheeks,
u would have been in heaven,"squaw candy"(that IS the term) which is air dried,smoked fish,bear roast
(not that great) ...salmon bake which tourist usually partake.....and of course moose burgers.

Question? Do U only do hothouse gardening or outdoor gardens.....I am presently doing a project*when
the temps get warmer....we are building a divider berm...finished out about 6 or 7 feet tall...the length of our
.23acre. My vision is to make it look natural,big boulders, drought resistant (and I mean NO water)shrubs
we really do not have a method to water consistently....just what comes from the sky. Since we are in dire
drought across the state...I have NO clue how this is going to come out looking good....except for the
rocking. I do have a guy who is familiar with building berms and San Juan Gardens is the "go to" for
all things green.....so I do have some sources. Just picking your knowledge, IF U have time.
