A Return to Founding Values: Part II

I would like to expand a little on last week’s piece. This is not a rebuttal, as I wrote this before last week’s Courier was sent out. I hope you noted that I did not say we weren’t a Christian people. However, we are not a specifically...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places:

This gardening season has been unusually long. Normally by now, I've had several frosts and a hard freeze, which kills off all the above ground vegetation. There have been a couple light frosts this...

 

A Return to Founding Values

Recently, my older sister posted this on social media: “So I just got an email from the RNC. Some chick in Florida wants me to donate so she can help return this country to the conservative values it was founded on. I don’t think she knows our...

First, a correction: Last week my column had a glaring error. I'd stated that green beans can be sliced or chopped and frozen as-is for cooking later. It should have said "green peppers." Beans need t...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places

Now that we've had a light frost, we can enjoy a bit of lingering summer. Sometimes this is the best part of summer for us. Our harvest is finished so we aren't worried about hailstorms  or early...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places

The cooler weather we had last week means it's officially 'worry about frost' season. This is the time of year I start thinking about dragging out the old truck tarps, blankets, and frost cloths....

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places

We finished our wheat harvest on Sept. 2. Now I have time to catch up on my garden chores, if only the weather and my body cooperate. While I'm much recovered from my boute with pneumonia, I haven't y...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places

I grew up as a military dependent, known to many as a brat. We brats embrace the term, not as a slur, but as a mark of distinction. We recognize in each other a shared lifestyle, foreign to most...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places

Last week I talked about harvest interfering with my gardening. On top of that, I managed to catch pneumonia, which I know nobody wants to hear about. Even medical professionals only listen to one's...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places:

This is the time of year my garden gets short shrift. Every year I know it's coming, and every year I still put in a large garden. Every year I swear I'm not going to do so much, but then spring happe...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places:

Many years ago, Dennis and I moved up north to become farmers with his parents. Before that, we were both employed at the former Glasgow Air Force base, long before it became St Marie. We didn't have...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places:

Many plants can be successfully grown in containers. Greenhouses do a thriving business selling both flowers and vegetables specifically for pots. The advantage is versatility. Flowers may bloom on yo...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places:

This week I thought I'd write about flowers. But this morning, just before 4 a.m., I was awakened by the winds and some thunder. The windows were open, bringing in the cool air, and I got up to close...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places:

It's raspberry season! I always look forward to the first delectable berries from my garden. Every time I head out there to work, I'll be checking on the progress of the canes. Early in the spring...
