Raspberries, Strawberries and Greenhouse Success
I have visited my friend, Anna's, greenhouse to check on my transplants that she has started for me. It is incredible. With only a potbelly stove, she is already so far ahead of the game. I dug 4 kinds of raspberries (1 black, 1 yellow 2 red), strawberries and took home an audacious basil, wild chives from SC Alaska and the energy to begin my greenhouse tasks.
I like to purchase transplants from businesses and individuals who have a track record of successful plants in Alaska. My strawberries are now in the greenhouse (136) and my raspberries (50) are planted on the hill, deep in bison manure and good compost. Thanks everyone for a great second week in May!
