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...

Seeding, Farming Cooking

We’re almost finished seeding the wheat crop. I hope that’s finished by the time we get our mailed copy of the Courier. We’ve been watching the forecast, and so we decided to work on Sunday (a rarity for us). That’s thrown me off schedule,...

Planting And Cooking

Some planting has been done up north, both in the garden and out in the wheat fields. Dennis finished pre-working the many, many acres that will be seeded (and fertilized) this summer. He's now...

 

Roots Run Deep for Hinsdale Grads

Small communities enjoy the comradely of shared history and traditions. They remain strong through ideals of generations of families sharing similar values, secrets, traditions, triumphs and tragedy....

Back To The Garden

We've finally had several nice days up here in the way-beyond middle-of-nowhereland. That has allowed lots of outside work to be completed. The garden space has been worked, despite a slight mishap...

 

Tidying Up

For years I have ignored Dennis' many farming magazines and newsletters. I have separated the pages of the newsprint ones to use the sheets to line the garbage cans and for washing windows. Newsprint...

 

Glasgow City-County Library Offering Online Services

Closing the Glasgow City-County Library was difficult, but important to keep people safe during this challenging time. Undoubtedly, it has had a huge impact on our patrons and community. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve and change, the...

 

Sunshine, Spring Sprouts and Soup

While the calendar says it’s spring, there’s still the occasional snowflake swirling down, at least up north. I wish Mother Nature would update her calendar to match ours. The sky is blue and the sun is shining as I write this Monday morning,...

A program delivered entirely online that aims to reduce depression and anxiety symptoms will be offered for free to hundreds of adult Montanans. The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services is making the program – an internet-based...

 

A Lack Of Alliteration Or Resting Brain Syndrome

My alliteration skills are lacking this week. I have not been able to come up with a catchy headline for my drivel this week. I think my brain wants to remain in pajamas this morning. I suspect there...

 

Snow, Seeds, Supper

I’m sad to report we’ve been getting more snow, off and on. It melts a little, a little gets added, then melts a little more. The melting is winning; I can see a bit of lawn next to the garden, as well as mud at the bottom, where my asparagus...

A program delivered entirely online that aims to reduce depression and anxiety symptoms will be offered for free to hundreds of adult Montanans. The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services is making the program – an internet-based...

 

Chirping, Chipping And Cooking

The spring bird migrations are finally occurring. We have had flocks of geese flying overhead. Last week a flock of crows had briefly graced our yard. There are lots of sparrows, juncos, and at least...

 

Snow, Seeds And Social Distancing

Living well beyond the Middle of Nowhere has some advantages over living in town, especially these days. Keeping your distance socially is much easier when your nearest neighbor is almost a mile...

 

Nature Gone Nuts

The time interval between snows and storms up here seems to be getting shorter. Last week our Monday snow arrived on Sunday; this week it arrived on Saturday. Mother Nature has taken this jumping ahead on the time to an insane level. She’s out of...

 

Changing Times?

Can we all agree we hate the biannual time changes? “Losing” that hour each spring seems harder than “gaining” it back in the fall. In reality, all we are accomplishing is messing up everyone’s time schedules. It’s an arbitrary insult to...

 

Rockin and Rollin' On Ice

HiLine Skating presents its 14th annual Showcase on Saturday, March 7, 2 p.m., at the Valley Event Center. The public is invited to come see what the skaters in the Learn to Skate program have...

 

Weathery Wind And Wordy Wind

Depending upon how you view reading my musings, you’re either in luck, or doomed. There was no major snowstorm on this Monday morning, March 2, just wind. And that wind was more of a breeze than the major gale we experienced Sunday. It had been...

 

WAG AOM Reception To Feature Myers' Easter Eggs

Just in time for Easter, Jason Myers will have 30 of his exquisitely designed and handmade sugar Easter eggs at the Wheatgrass Arts & Gallery's Artist of the Month reception, located at the...

 

Starting To Hate Mother Nature

It seems as though on Monday mornings (the time I take to write this column since it is due by noon, after all) Mother Nature decides to frown on us and deliver another helping of unwanted snow. It’s almost enough to make me want to discontinue...
