Back in July I talked about some major life changes and a temporary move while I took some time to regroup (Sweet Freedom and Wide Open Spaces). At the time, I wasn’t sure where life’s road would lead, but in a few short months doors began to open, things fell into place, and I landed right under Montana’s big, beautiful sky! While I miss the old familiar places, nothing compares to the sight of the majestic Bitterroot Mountains enshrouded in mist and morning glow. Rumor has it there’s some mighty fine hiking in those mountains, with waterfalls on every trail.
I have to admit to some culture shock; I exchanged a cubicle and computer keyboard for an acre of ground, with the hope of developing it into a flower and vegetable garden. However, deer and elk abound, along with a wide assortment of other critters that relish fresh salad.
Still, I’m eager to get started, and even more eager to write about building raised beds, starting seedlings, and designing the overall layout for a functional mini-farm. Definitely I won’t complete the project this year, and will likely be writing more about what not to do than what to. At any rate, my efforts should produce some whimsical posts that leave some folks chuckling and others shaking their heads in disbelief!
