I would imagine it would work out very well there. You guys have a ton of daylight in the summer and Homer gets a decent amount of rain. I'd definately go for it.

I used to live up the road in Ninilchik about 17 years ago.

Maybe this article will encourage you.

Because of the short growing season, you'll probably want early maturing varieties. Fuggle & Northern Brewer are good choices. Some of the Goldings are earlies.

I've thought of that as well, if they grow good in Oregon, perhaps a place like Delta Junction could form a "cash crop". Or a secondary "cash crop".
