Predicting the Weather to Fight Fires Down Under

Complaints Yielded Results

I do believe all my complaining about winter arriving early and Montana not understanding how a calendar works has actually paid off. The snow has melted away, thanks to the wind, rain, and warmer (above freezing!) temperatures. Don’t ruin my joy...

 

Winter Of Discontent

The calendars are all wrong. It looks like we’re skipping fall this year and are jumping straight into winter. It’s going to be a long one. Dennis pointed out, as I complained, that we did get some Indian summer (are we allowed to use that...

Winter Isn't Coming, It's Arrived

I think Mother Nature has it in for us in Montana. She's trying to start winter while according to the calendar, it's still fall. I recently remarked that Montana just doesn't understand the...

 

Fall Clean-Up

This is the time of year I'm thoroughly tired of gardening. I'm ready for it to be finished. The wheat crop is all in the bins, the trees are turning color and dropping leaves like crazy, and I'm...

 

Fall is Here – Ick!

I had a a few weeks off from writing, which has really helped me without my having to ask for it. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the John Deere Trac, running the grain cart while Dennis runs the combine. The houseplants had already been...

 

Show Your Scottie Spirit All Year Around

Scottie 2020 pride buttons are now available for purchase to support the Glasgow Scotties during Homecoming and beyond. Buttons are $10 each or only $5 to renew last year’s button. Money raised during the sales will go towards bringing tournaments...

 

This And That

Editor's Note: This column was submitted to us on Aug. 31. The making of another frosting used up the remainder of my fresh raspberries. The following recipe was finally tested and is definitely a keeper. I’m using it for graham cracker...

 

The Fair Comes To Valley View Home

A.J. ETHERINGTON THE COURIER The Valley County Fair made its way to Valley View Home last week to bring the festivities to residents who remain largely isolated from the outside world amid the...

 

Pool Campaign Closing In On $1,000,000 Raised

Budding entrepreneur Oakleigh Trott chose one of the hottest weeks of the summer to set up shop in front of her house. Selling $0.50 lemonade one cup at a time, she amassed quite the business "Ya, I'v...

 

Confession Time

First off, I'm offering a confession: my gardening skills are not up to par this year. I'm feeling rather disappointed in my efforts this year. I don't know if it is because it's 2020 (the whole Covid...

 

Raspberry Recipes

This week's column will be almost all recipes. I'm using up my remaining raspberries without just freezing them 'as is'. Save these winners for next summer. They'll be worth it, I promise! I'm in...

 

Gone From Berries To Beans

While I’m still harvesting a few raspberries, they are definitely at the tail end of their capacity to produce appreciable numbers for this summer. A few of the canes may flower again and attempt a second crop, but those berries will succumb to...

 

Raspberries, Raspberries, Raspberries

I'm still spending all the hours of every morning picking raspberries. They just keep on ripening and requiring picking. I'll go around the outer edges of the long rows one day, and then through the...

 

This And That

I could get used to only writing a column every other week. The Courier hasn't had room for my drivel a couple of times lately, so I've enjoyed those "free" Mondays. The problem is remembering which...

 

Nursery Rhyme Time

“Mary, Mary, quite contrary. How does your garden grow?” “Like an out-of-control jungle, that’s how!” (I’ve resisted working this little jingle into my column for years, and aren’t you sorry I finally succumbed?) In place of silver...

Feeling Behind

First off, let me apologize for taking a week off from writing about gardening. We had a family gathering to celebrate a 90th birthday. It took a week to properly fete the birthday girl. There wasn't...

 

Spring Bounty

Editor’s Note: This column was submitted to us on June 7. Due to space in the past few issues of the Courier, this column was held. I’m still enjoying fresh rhubarb and asparagus, but not together of course! I still haven’t made a rhubarb pie,...

 

Busy-ness, Seeds and Eats

Another busy week has been competed, with a lot accomplished. First off, almost all my houseplants have been moved outside. The hoya vine and the mother spiderplant don’t go out. I’m loathe to disturb them and possibly lose them. Don’t tell my...

Spring Brings Work

It's very easy to lose track of time now, isn't it? In farming, one day is much like another, so holidays tend to sneak up on us. I let this Memorial Day ambush me, especially since there wasn't a...
