Inch by inch, row by row

Someone asked a while back in the comments what sort of gardening goes on in Itipini. Here, at last, is an answer.

Many people, though by no means all, garden around their homes.

A major component of the after-school program is their garden, which they plant and tend year-round. I’ve lost count but I think they are on their third crop this year. As you can see, their corn gets quite tall. They either keep the vegetables for themselves or sell them in town.

Green things are beautiful. Speaking of which, it is near Mid Night Sun here in Nome (the weekend in which I met you). Last week, it was snowing. Today, we had our first Alaska Airlines jet land in 5 days.
