Winter is coming!

The tundra (and the TundraGarden) are changing color.

The pond had its first ice this morning, which lasted until after noon.

And there was a small drift of snow against the door…

Winter is coming…

Talk on the TundraGarden

 

Yesterday I gave a talk on the TG to nearly 20 local folks!  It was part of a series, loosely centered on local food production, being put on by Ilisaġvik College as part of the Alaska Cooperative Extension Service.  I talked a bit about how the TG got started, showed a lot of plant & flower pictures and talked about how to get plants (step 1:  get permission of the land owner), and the cultural requirements of different plants.  I also talked a bit about water features & birds and animals in the garden.  The whole thing was taped, and when time permits will be edited and posted on BASCmedia’s YouTube channel.  I’ll put a link up then.

I also mentioned a number of books.  I’ve made a Book Lists page which I just put up.  I’ll add to it as I think of things.
I’m always happy to answer any questions.
