A Tangled Garden in Tok

A few weeks of neglect while traveling let the vegetable garden overgrow and go to seed a bit, but despite the neglect, the rain and the limited sun this summer, our garden’s yield has been pretty good. Just a few photos from the other day.

Ended up making a fresh pico de gallo with the tomatoes and a jalapeno along with a cucumber (store bought organic) and an onion (also store bought). Delish! The only downside: the peas this year are woody. Now what can I do with several gallons of carrots? The swiss chard was easy – the whole bunch sauteed was a perfect side dish for three for a single meal.

All in an Alaska summer’s growing season.

How did your vegetable garden fare this year?

    That’s some garden! We still have endless lettuce and kale and spinach. Hopefully another month’s worth. Your carrots look much bigger, though, and carrots? Fuggedaboutit.

    Good job, a garden to be proud of, Aliza. I just grew some tomatoes in the greenhouse in Soldotna this summer and nothing in the raised beds outside…wasn’t sure where I would be due to my husband’s work schedule. But I am still eating the tomatoes and enjoying them. Your carrots look particularly good. Have you tried potatoes yet? Cheers!
