Hi Gary! You should submit a couple of your pics in the Lawn Wars TV Show contest. Go to the Yard Contests tab to get started. Maybe a shot of that enourmous cabbage!

its zone 2 here. We grow some perenials but mostly very hardy annuals that can withstand a light frost. We have our first frost alot of years end of Aug or 1st part of Sept. First snow in Sept and lasting snow 1st of Oct. so our gardens are white till May. We can catch Graylin out of the creek but most are only 5-8 inches...but once in awhile a bigger one moves thru. They can handle the current as it is always flowing strong. Thank-you so much for your interest and feel free to ask anything you wish about our gardens or outside up here...Gary

we have one small attached to the house greenhouse that we open up in Mar sometime pending the weather then.another with wood heat we open in mid April and the others are woven plastic greenhouse that prtoect the last 1/2 month of May when everything is getting potted up for the gardens.Our petunia's we start from seed in early Mar. they are in large 6" pots for june 1st planting...potting up when small is the KEY to success!!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING GARDENS! I enjoyed the whole slideshow...especially the BLUE delphiniums. How many green houses do you have? And what do you grow or start in them? Smiles, Lark

The beauty of your garden beds reflect inspiration, creativity and dedication. I can only imagine the on-going labor of love it takes to garden in such a hostile climate. Thanks for sharing your photos and ideas!
