Default Gardening at 63° North

So far this summer has been quite abnormal here. We had record high temps in May followed with cool beginning of June and now a real heat wave. Hot weather is relative so for us hot is when temperature goes over 80°F or 26°C.

I have a 10'x12' greenhouse, small raised beds made from pallet collars and container garden on or city yard.

First harvest from my garden was container grown potatoes. Now finally tomatoes are starting to ripen and cucumbers are growing too.

First ripe tomato from container outdoors was Ola Polka and in the greenhouse Frutica. Seeds for both varieties were sent to me by some nice people here in Tomatoville
