About me

I live in fairbanks, alaska. My gardening is the mainstay of my life, what I love, and I love getting to share that as well. We start fall august 15 and freeze by second week of sept, hard frost. Right along with the sun going down.....for winter....:-) And spring sun comes late with warmth, the snow melting away through April, last hard frost end of May. I may be a little morose around then, but I have the spring indoor garden. I previously had no running water, in the early garden. Now I am moving the whole thing, a brand new adventure in a new garden plot. I find myself outdoors gardening far more that I had imagined when the passion began and find excitement to layout a new garden, and explore more. 2012.

I'd like to mention that never have I found more garden loving comeraderie and joy in sharing that love than I have here at GOY. I thank everyone here with me for such a treasure of an experience.
