I'm from BYC but I don't need to grow food for my birds. I just like to garden. I have roses, bearded iris and the typical xeriscape plants one grows in the desert and I also have about 75 trees of various kinds.
Welcome North Pole , AK. I bet gardening is a challenge with your growing periods. Let us know what you grow and how you do it. I though I was bad with desert gardening with little water but you have me beat by a mile or three.
