Zone 4 gardening is a tough gig. The sub-zero temperatures of winter put a big damper on what perennials will survive in your garden or orchard. Stick that Zone 4 in Alaska and you add extra long winter, sunlight ranging from 19+ hours to less than 4 per day, the occasional summer that never gets warmer that 56 degrees… It’s challenging to say the least. But the good news is there are lots of bloggers out there that have been there, done that, and wrote about it to help you out!
I'm an Alaskan wife with a dream of a self sufficient life and a love of reading, knitting, and writting. I love working in my home to become more self-sufficient and turning my little acre into a homestead! Read all about my little homestead at www.idlewildalaska.com
