Mollie Kabler and Kitty LaBounty, hosts of KCAW’s Garden Show, did not stop at their favorite blooms. This week, Sitka’s greenest thumbs identified their Top Ten vegetables. Here’s the list.
6. Mesclun (mixed greens)
8. Joi choi (Chinese style cabbage like bok choy)
10. Daikon radish
The negotiated extras that didn’t make the top 10: spinach, French sorrel, leeks.
Sometime in August crews working on the Blue Lake hydro project in Sitka will shut off the old penstock from the dam and connect a new one -- work that will leave the town without its drinking water supply for up to four months. In the meantime, the city is returning to its former water plant on the Indian River, but it’s not a matter of turning a few valves. Because of higher drinking water standards, Sitka has rented a temporary filtration plant -- at a cost of about $1-million per month. more
Sitka Fine Arts Camp director Roger Schmidt and development intern Melissa Campbell discuss the camp's Restoration Internship Program. Twenty-six college students from around the country are working to save the former Sheldon Jackson College laundry, aka "Smokestack Building." Learn more about the Save It or Lose It campaign
