Oh man, homegrown

Oh man, homegrown watermelon! I would almost fly to Mississippi just to taste that! Needless to say, here in Alaska, any watermelons we do get (from Mexico?) pale in comparison.

Cabbages and the other cole vegetables all do well here, and lettuce, and carrots and beets (I don't touch those, though). I like root parsley also, a traditional Polish vegetable. Tomatoes and beans are almost a lost cause here unless you have ideal location and ideal weather.

No tree fruits here except crabapples, but I do grow a lot of gooseberries, which make fantastic jam (well, I think so, but not everyone agrees).
