While most people are fixated on football, politics, and covid…. up North we have the Katmai Fat Bear Week competition. Grizzly’s are beefing up to sleep out the winter. Big boy Bear 747 fittingly took the prize!
Big bear fun aside, we have been wrapping up (hopefully) a month of rain. August is usually the rain month but September substituted this year. With the clearing, we finally yanked out a couple hundred potatoes yesterday. We’re going to do a shallow till with the PDR implement and the BCS. Then we’ll lay down a couple hundred garlic plants in Colleen’s experimental garden to harvest next year. If you are interested, we picked up three varieties (Music, German Red, and Blanak) from Territorial Seed.
Our 100 ft. high tunnel finally arrived in early September just after the rain started. After the month delay, we decided to wait and put it up next Spring. We were going to put the chickens in it over the winter. With the loss of that winter home, we are going to put up a smaller 12 x 8 tunnel in Colleen’s garden. Here are some free plans that gave us the idea. We are going to embellish it a bit to make a better front door and overall sturdier structure. We have just started it but will post a few pics after it’s finished.
Be well & green dreams!
