More strawberries please, just 24 strawberry plants but boy are they big this year. Got it right this time, more acid to the soil, and more food. We have the everbearing kind, they produce right up till the first hard frost. We hope to be able to freeze up enough to last all year.
Hot Days Ahead! A reminder that pets and livestock need extra water to drink. My chickens are drinking nearly double their normal amount.
Our Community Appreciation Day and BBQ Fundraiser is a fun, old-fashioned, Summertime outing for your whole family. Enjoy a delicious meal prepared by our firefighters. Come visit with your friends and neighbors. Check out our fire engines, and meet our firefighters. And, it’s a great opportunity to ask questions, and learn more about fire prevention and fire safety. Old-fashioned community BBQ with Grilled bison burgers, baked beans, potato salad, watermelon, cake and huckleberry ice cream. Live music, fire truck rides, and silent auction.
Everyday we enjoy time on our porch swing. The last two swings only lasted a few years, then all the fabric falls apart. So we’re building our own swing. The frame of the porch swing is 2X4’s a couple pieces of 2×6’s and Trex for the seat and the back. I am hoping that the Trex will out last me, I like to build things to last, sure not going to have to repeat this in a couple of years. Becca just finished stripping our front door, then stain and two seal coats. What a nice looking front door we have now. Summer is here and there are always projects that need to get done. We had to replace a few windows this year also, they had lost their seal. You know the old saying, “If you live in a place long enough you will have to replace the whole thing sooner or later”. I don’t know if anyone really said that, but it sure seems to be true.
Becca made a trip down to Arlee Montana, a small valley just north of Missoula, to Garden of 1000 Buddhas. It was pretty interesting, the gardens were kept nice, the setting was well thought out with mountains surrounding the place. She put together a video of the gardens and statues for you to enjoy.
Thought for Today –
“Nothing ever comes to someone, that is really worth having, except as a result of hard work.”
