How to have a Lazy Garden in a Cold Climate

I’ll be totally honest with you. My garden is lousy this year. I may be an Alaskan Master Gardener, but with no time to do anything in the garden, there just isn’t much happening with it this year.

Healthy Mixed Berry Muffins

My cousin is not a baker. She’s a cook. She’ll be the first to tell you that. Give her ingredients and watch her toss them together, add spices, taste, and adjust as necessary and whatever she makes will be delicious. But when she needs a cheesecake, she asks me to make it. So when she … Continue reading »

Growing Fruit in Alaska

I finished my Alaska Master Gardeners course today, about… one hour ago. It was such a great class and I learned so much!
