Spring at the Great Falls Farmers Market

Green house greens 2013

The first day of spring has just passed, and a snowstorm is forecast for this week.  Farmers have their greenhouses going but will be late in getting the seeds into the ground. The daffodils are peeking through and the birds are chirping, but the winter has not yet unleashed its hold.  We have heard that many hives have been lost due to the extremely cold winter.

Time to think about a summer garden and food preservation approaches to extending the supply through next winter.

We welcome your comments and suggestions at
