Warmer temperatures in Alaska are giving farmers flexibility to plant a wider range of crops over a longer growing season. One farmer says the secret to his bounty is soil enriched by flooding rivers.
I got a new place this fall and I've put up thermometers all over the place to find out what zone I am in and where my microclimates are.
I don't have the benefit of a flooding river to provide nutrients, but my land is in the forest, so the nutrients will be there, I just have to clear a big enough area to get sunlight to the ground.
