From the Alaska Garden

We are running much cooler this summer with heavy cloud cover and cold rain. The garden is running about 4 weeks behind. First frost is no more than 6 weeks off.

The crops are struggling mightily to reach maturity. Yields will be low.

This blossom is over 6 inches across and the plant is throwing leaves that are over a foot square. I don’t recall the zucchini of my Indiana youth being so large.

Cauliflower and cabbage are putting out monster leaves as well.
