Grow and Harvest

Juneau's cool and wet weather and varied microclimates pose challenges to gardening here.  But we can still grow a surprising diversity and quantity of good food.

Successful gardening relies on several basic principles.  Start with crops that do well here.  Give them a fighting chance by making sure they have fertile, well-drained soils and as much light as possible.  Protect them from our few, but determined, pests and diseases.
