Gardeners in Alaska face challenges that gardeners in the lower 48 states would never dream of. For example, few gardeners in the contiguous United States must fence their gardens to protect them from foraging moose. Alaskan gardeners also must contend with short growing seasons, cold soil, poor drainage, irrigation problems and property that isn't quite level. Gardeners who choose to overcome these challenges will be rewarded with fresh vegetables for their kitchen tables.
