Growing corn can be an iffy thing in Alaska. Too often, the summers just don’t get warm enough. But this year we have hope. Last summer reached well into the 80’s (unusual for here!) and there’s a chance this summer will be warm too. So in hope, we’ve planted a short season sweet corn. To give it even more of a boost, we’re container planting corn and beans, and keeping the Three Sisters Method of planting in mind.
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
