I believe these are beans. I should get out in the garden more often, apparently.

The irises in our garden are just past their peak, I think, at the end of June. But they're still nice to look at.

This is a giant bunch of columbine flowers in front of our small guest/storage cabin and greenhouse.

I like this columbine a lot. Got a whole cluster of them in perennial bed.

Ah, the columbine. What more is there to say?

I'm not sure what this is. But it's in our garden, so I'll just call it the purply-pinkish flower. I'm sure my wife knows what it is, though.

Our two lilac bushes are blooming this year like they haven't in years. It's kind of like they enjoyed us leaving them alone.

My wife, Julie, swears the plants in the veggie garden grew 2 inches today (June 25, 2012).

The flowers in our perennial bed seem to erupt from nowhere in a short period of time. It's almost like the plants know they need to show off because the summer's so short here in Interior Alaska.

Here are some of the flowers from our perennial bed at our house in Two Rivers. These are my kind of flowers: no maintenance.

Rhubarb comes up so fast, I bet you could notice growth from one day to the next. I don't think I'll want to eat the rhubarb next to the cat, though. —Rod Boyce, managing editor.

I believe this is the perennial bed in our garden. You can tell I'm not the gardener at my house. —Rod Boyce, managing editor.

Our greenhouse, earlier this week in May 2012. I built it last year and am actually pretty proud of how it turned out.

More from inside our greenhouse out in Two Rivers, Alaska. My wife is the gardener. I'm mostly the consumer.

It's that time of year (mid-April) when the thoughts of many Alaskans turn to gardening. It's that way at our house in Two Rivers, northeast of Fairbanks, where my wife has already got things going for the growing season. This photo of our garden is from August 2011.

Oodles and oodles of peas hung from our pea fence last year. The fence also serves well for playing hide-and-seek with our daughter. —Rod Boyce, managing editor

The dill sure grows tall. I bet it was at least 4 1/2 feet when I shot this photo. —Rod Boyce, managing editor

Our garden. More properly, it's my wife's garden. But I do help her consume what it produces. —Rod Boyce, managing editor
