Cleaning the Garden?

It seems as though our hot summer weather has departed. I don't expect prolonged heat to return so I've taken our two window air conditioners out. They're stored for the winter. If we do get an...

 

The Big Harvest and All the Go, Go, Go

There hasn't been much gardening or cooking done this past week as we've gone after harvesting our yearly income. When the wheat is ready to combine, that's what we do, almost to the exclusion of all...

A Case of Mistaken Identity

Since both the raspberries and green beans are slowing down, I've had a little time to look around more at the rest of the garden. I'm still picking some of both, but there aren't nearly as many to...

 

Raspberries and Beans: The Magical Fruits

Weeds, Corn and Cookies

We’ve been getting more rain, for which we are grateful. However, all that wetness means the weeds are really sprouting. The crops we want to grow are not the only plants thriving out there. So, while my husband is trying to get our wheat crop...

Mourning Doves and Home Grown Deliciousness

I did finally make some rhubarb muffins, but was disappointed in how they turned out. They tasted fine, but the topping wasn't the best. I do, however, feel that is my fault, not the fault of the...

 

Unshelved: Sign Up for the GCCL Summer Reading Program

The library is a marvelous place with wonders between the covers of its books. I still remember the first time I went to the grade-school library with my class. I was fascinated by the many books just waiting for me to delve into them. There were...

 

Weeding, Mowing and Rewarding

It’s that time of year where the garden is really starting to look like a garden, but it isn’t producing much yet. The weeds, however, are trying to take over. Therefore, I’m doing lots of weeding, trying to give my veggies a leg up. Weeding...

Just Another Sunday in Big Sky Country

It's almost been three years since my dad, Myron Blanchard, died. I find that hard to believe, but that's what it says on his headstone. There are things that remind me of him every day. Heck,...

 

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...

 

Green Spaces in Rural Places:

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...
