High tunnels can mean high yields for Kenai Peninsula crops. Rupert Scribner with Kenai Feed tells us how to avoid high stress by installing them correctly. Then, kids at Soldotna Montessori have the dirt on what it takes to grow good gardeners. Finally, May is morel mushroom season on the central Kenai Peninsula. Dr.  George Spady shares tips for finding fungi on the forest floor.

The morels weren't quite out the first week of May on the Funny River Horse Trail, but Dr. George Spady did harvest a few other forest finds, including some Labrador tea.
