March of the Scotties

Glasgow Scottie fans were treated to a special performance by the Glasgow Pep Band at the Homecoming game Sept. 20. After five solid weeks of preparation, the pep band became a marching band at...

 

Harvest Has Been Killed

Now that this year's formerly promising crop has probably been ruined (the strong winds and heavy snow looked to be crushing it to the ground) we're regrouping and trying to think of a plan B...or...

 

Wheatgrass Arts and Gallery October Artist of the Month Supports Lustre Up And Coming Artist

In support of up and coming artists, the Wheatgrass Arts & Gallery is excited to host Halle Paige Reddig as its October Artist of the Month. Seventeen-year-old Halle grew up in Lustre, Mont. Like...

 

Finally, Some Harvesting is Done!

We might have 25 percent of this year's crop in the bins now. Harvest is going to be a long, drawn-out affair. Dennis was born Sept. 25, 1950, and his mom tells us she and Dad were only half finished...

 

Another Week Of No Wheat Harvested

Another week had passed without any wheat being harvested. Unfortunately, there’s still more rain in the forecast. Granted, only small amounts are forecast, but it’s just enough to keep things from drying enough to go after our wheat. The...

 

Deja Vu?

I was tempted to use last week’s report again this week. The rain is a bit of deja vu, although we were able to get some of the wheat crop in and binned. I’ve spent a few hours this last week out in the tractor hauling the grain cart between the...

 

A Library Card Is More Than Just For Books

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, and the Glasgow City-County Library is joining with the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to encourage people of all ages to obtain a free library card. This year, Disney Pixar’s To...

 

Not Harvest Weather

The weather seems as though it just doesn't want us to harvest our wheat. First the cool month of June delayed the start of the crop. Now the cool, wet August has delayed the ripening of the wheat....

 

Apples to Apples Or Apples to Butter to Sauce to Pies?

Shortly after I wrote last week's column I was perusing the new and used Glasgow sale site via Facebook. I happened to be the first respondent to an offer of free locally-grown apples. Having...

 

Wheat Harvest Looming

Our wheat crop is rapidly ripening, and so harvest is looming. I may still have a week to 10 days before I switch gears from gardener to grain cart operator. The days of being able to plan my days...

 

Jungle-Causing Rains

Another week has gone by. We've had a bit of over an inch of rain in that time, and it's still drizzling down as I write this. The garden is rapidly becoming a jungle. Thanks to the grass I've...

 

Still Too Much

The raspberry picking continues. That chore easily consumes two hours of each of my days except Sundays. I have plenty of those delectable fruits in my freezer, and so my local family and several...

 

Can't Have Too Much Of A Good Thing

I posted a photo of the volunteer sunflowers in my garden, stating that perhaps I'd left too many of them. A friend commented, "You can never have too many sunflowers!" But sometimes we do find...

 

Tidying Up – A.K.A. Weeding and Mowing

This past week I've spent a fair amount of time tidying up in and around the garden. I have installed a new battery in my solar powered electric fence, so I don't need weeds around the perimeter...

 

Visitors and Rhubarb

This past week a gardening club, led by Mary Christianson, came to visit me, to view my yard and garden. They, like me, love to see what others have done to beautify their outdoor space. We're always...

Largesse from the Garden

Last week my column was entitled "Life Giving Rain" by the Courier, which is a very accurate title. Unfortunately, it's brought life not only to my desired plantings, but also to all the myriad of...

 

Life-Bringing Rain

We’ve had some measurable rain lately, and so I’m avoiding (ignoring?) the garden for now. It’s still chilly with a damp wind. I know it’s muddy, and I really don’t feel the need to get taller by packing the gumbo onto the bottoms of my...

Under the Big Sky, a storytelling series produced by the Montana Television Network, recently won awards from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Northwest Chapter at the Emmy Gala...

 

Battling Pesky Pests and Rhubarb Yummies

Those cute little bunnies I like watching have discovered my garden. Apparently the new leaves on green beans are delicious. After I discovered several sections of bare stems sticking up, reseeding with a packet of older seeds happened. I’ve...

 

Pesky Pests Plant Themselves in the Garden

Naturally, as soon as our window air conditioners were installed, Mother Nature decided if I wanted to be cooler, she'd oblige. My husband, the weather geek, being an early riser, told me it had...

Back by popular demand, Lend Me a Tenor, a multi-Tony Award winner, opens Fort Peck Summer Theatre’s 50th season. A legendary farce, set in 1934 at the famous Cleveland Grand Opera Company, this side-splitting comedy features mistaken identity,...

Cooking and Cleaning

First things first: I’d taken a wheatberry salad to the Memorial Day program in Opheim. The American Legion Auxiliary, of which I’m a (not very active) member provides the meal after the program. A couple of the other (more active) members...

Still Busy

Because of Memorial Day weekend, the newspaper deadline was moved up. This is being written last Friday (I’ve become a time-traveler). Seems like I just wrote a column and here it’s time for another. In spite of the cold wind and cool...
