A great weekend hike , a bit of (maybe last?) snow, strong winds, and a deep freeze. It's spring in Montana as usual.
The spring chores continue as the farm begins to shed the mantle of winter and look forward to spring and summer planting!
The hens enjoy the warm days even is the nights are still a bit chill.
And the seeds saved from last year are finally separated and packed up!
Most are available in the online store with a few more to come next week
The ducks definitely don't mind a little snow and even the hens tolerated it as long as I scraped enough aside so they could see that there was for sure ground not too far beneath it
On Saturday, I hosted an Outsiety (www.outsiety.com) event for women to hike along the Kootenai on Bighorn Sheep Trail. It was a wonderful day with a special side trip up to see a special waterfall. There are other Outsiety events all year long and I'll probably host a few more this summer and in winter! All events are free!
A deep freeze with a low of 14F hit Tuesday morning. All the seedlings in the greenhouse were double (and even tripled covered) in frost cloth, the emergency electric heater was on (it can't heat the whole thing, but can take the edge off). A pre-dawn check in let me know that all was ok and it got down to 28F in the greenhouse and 32F under the cloths.
What's available this week?
Where to find it all?
