Gardening in Southeast Alaska is different from other places. We have weather patterns that move slowly, meaning that three solid weeks of rain is not unusual. Our climate requires refining every skill from the gardening toolbox. That's not to say that techniques and science won't make you a better gardener in the Midwest - just that there, you can often plop a seed in dirt and watch it grow into something you can harvest. In contrast, more than a bit of luck is required to have a successful season in Southeast Alaska.

This book provides a foundation for gardeners who plant and harvest in a short, cold, wet season. Understanding these fundamentals, along with accumulated knowledge and skills, will provide you with what you need to create an abundant garden.

About the Author

Corinne Conlon grew up with an extended family that produced enough food to feed their families through the winter, then she moved to Alaska. She became a Master Gardener in 2011. After planting and harvesting at community gardens, in friends' plots, and in a borrowed greenhouse, she bought her own house to continue her growing adventures. She writes a gardening column for her local newspaper.
