Nome Garden Tour 2014

This past summer I took a garden class.  It is not the same as growing stuff in the midwest.  You don't plant stuff in the ground.  Everything goes in the green house and you start your seedlings in the spring around April.  Every year they have a tour that goes around to the various gardeners who have put energy into a garden.  (Some of my pictures made it in the paper!)

Net Picking

Sometimes our friend Phil goes out of town and asks us to pick his salmon net while he is away.  We like the break from work to go for a short boat ride out in the ocean.
Has it really been since April for a post here on blogspot?  It has been a great summer as far as weather goes here in Nome. My friend Roger says next summer everyone will expect a nice summer and be sorely disappointed. I hiked here on the way to a geocache.  I think I might place on here the next time I go by.
