FAIRBANKS — It is inevitable that the plot of early June will have developed some bare spots by now. Transplants die, seeds have been unevenly sown but that is not obvious until patches of dirt stay stubbornly brown instead of hosting tiny green seedlings, your dog digs up a corner of the garden ... on and on. 

I used to try to fill these spaces with quick growing crops like lettuce, even though we are not big on greens other than bok choi. But a few years ago I realized my desire to patch the garden coincided with the needs of local nurseries to rid themselves of excess flowers by offering great sales. I decided to transplant only edible flowers, which added variety to our foods while enhancing the appearance of the garden, and it was such a success that I now count on June’s bare spots to improve my garden.
