What a crazy week — 6 Comments

  1. Crazy weather here. Last week we had five days when it didn’t get above zero. So far this week we had one 36 hour period in the upper thirties and just barely freezing last night and 15 inches of snow forecast for tonight and nothing below upper teens for the rest of the week. Any new recommended tomato varities. Are any of the paste tomatoes short season enough for up here in Alaska.

    • Mia’s Italian Paste is a very large, quite early tomato in our garden, usually about the fourth variety ripe…and lots of them, too! Most are in the 12 oz size too.

  2. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog for a long time. You have such experience and knowledge! I’m 65 and will be moving to a senior apartment soon with no outside access for a garden. I’ve had some experience with veggie gardens over the years and now I would very much like to garden some things indoors under lights. I’d love to include some veggies if possible. Herbs, lettuces, spinach, green beans, eggplant, tomatoes…..Have you any experience with this type of gardening? or can you direct me to a knowledgeable expert?
