Huge, huge vegetables
Agriculture might not seem like something Alaskans would take part in. After all, you’d assume that it’s practically impossible to dig in the frozen soil, but in fact, the fertile land and 20-plus hours of sunlight every day make the Last Frontier the perfect place for competitive vegetable growing.
In fact, most of the Alaskan farm yields are oversized compared to what we have on mainland US. Not only do pumpkins and cabbage grow larger and quicker, but the extra sunlight actually makes them sweeter, too. A single pumpkin can probably feed a family of four for up to a week or more.
