    @Rhodie Ranch, they All make me “gasp with wonder” every time i see them again! seeing them in real time is un-describable and when i take someone out with me i make sure they’re willing to stay a couple nights. No day trips out of Whittier! Once you see the World go to sleep and wake up one...

    A few nice pictures

    Good morning, today were looking at a small hook out of Seward where i like to stop and clean fish on my way back in. It’s not unlike a thousand other suitable places except that it’s right on the path taken by all the tour boats as they move about the bay showing tourist the popular sights...

    Garden humor thread..

    Im down one of my “Herd Animals” today as i found this poor girl dead in the snow. She must have really had to go to take a cleansing flight at 30! She’s one of my black bee’s (Carnolian’s) and ive noticed they will fly at lower temps. if she could have just held it 2 more months, it would have...

    @digitS' , that would be a question for our creator, but bear in mind were talking about a land mass more than twice the size of Texas! A land mass equal to 1/3 of the total United States. Now, east and west Texas are also similar using latitude logic and yet one is very bleak and the other...

    And if your waiting to eat cilantro until it seeds, your missing out. We grow it in long pots (3ft) and once it reaches 8 inches or so, start at one end clear cutting as we go. One of those pots last about 2 weeks. Then we switch over to the next one and keep the cycle going. We seed it heavily...

    Might be the “strain” of either? We grow parsley and cilantro year round, eating a small handful every day. They’re in that good for you group and help draw heavy metals from your system.

    Today we’re looking at some of the places we anchor for the evenings. Bettles bay is scenic but buggy later in the year. I only stay there if im up in that area shrimping, long before the bugs come out. Mink island is my favorite, it’s very secure and quite scenic. The focal length adjustment...

    Thanks for the encouraging words @Ridgerunner but i already won the prize, being able to go there, be in those places and spend time. Creation is a wonderful thing that i never tire of! Over the years folks have told me “gee, you should make a calendar or enter them in the State fair etc. I did...

    Good morning America, here’s you daily dose of Alaskana! Enjoy A puffin who would dive for our bait while mooching salmon. You had to be quick cause they easily dive 100 ft, fast! A commercial fisherman who’d peddled to the other side of the bay to visit someone on that thing. I passed him...

    My son is very smart

    Thoughts on the Kentucky Rifle in the Golden Age by Joe Kindig jr! 2 inch thick, BIG book, picture heavy. Possibly a library could round one up. the most amazing revolutionary war history along with “the tools of the trade”. Art and History in the same class.

    Growing Potatoes - Zone 4

    Everything moves over one slot each year. Of the 8 raised beds, 5 are growing root vegetables so its hard to give them a textbook rotation, but we’ve found that unnecessary as we amend heavily for plant nutrition and disease has never been a problem.
