How to enjoy beautiful, fresh tomatoes in Palmer, Alaska. There was a time when I managed a 3,300 square foot hydroponic tomato greenhouse in Southern Arizona. 1,000 plants producing 125 giant tomatoes everyday year-round. While in Northern Arizona I grew the best outdoor tomatoes, filled with flavor and an acidic pH that would make you weep. I have been in Alaska for 16 years and have not yet learned to grow a tomato that comes close to the tomatoes from my past.
It all starts with having 2 nephews who live in Arizona and love to grow tomatoes. I trade fresh halibut and smoked salmon for their fresh tomatoes grown by Zack and Zane Langenbach.
