From the vegetable garden in Tok

We got an earlier start this year to our vegetable garden. Actually my husband did all the work this year, and we’re slowly reaping the rewards. The only thing not from our garden in this picture is the tomato.

Here we have chives, a killer zucchini, radishes, spinach, swiss chard, mixed greens and lambs quarter. You can eat all the lambs quarter – tastes great sauteed – and even eat the flowers which taste fine raw.

What are you growing in your garden?

    Well, i’ll be visiting a close friend Tok in August. One of my dreams is moving to Alaska, wild and endless lands.

    Only drawback of Alaska is you can’t have a decent garden. Here where i live, we start working in the garden in February and we usually stop september/october. On the harvesting side, you can get several kind vegetables almost the entire year.

    Was wondering if with proper greenhousing you can’t extend the period of harvesting and/or anticipate the starting of productions?

    • In Tok, we can have an insanely great garden in a very condensed amount of time. And a greenhouse does extend a tiny bit but unless totally electrified, it gets cold in there rather quickly. I’m not much of a gardener. I just pretend!

      Hi Aliza -Last year you were all excited about the produce and fresh fruit that the CV truck drove to Tok all the way from Montana/CA. Did you enjoy it again? And did your idea for a mini farmer’s market get any traction? We love ours and it gets bigger and better as it becomes a community institution and draw.
