In the Rocky Mountains there’s a good chance you still have snow on the ground, or if the snow has melted you are dealing with frozen ground that turns muddy for a few hours during the day and then freezes again.

    Mary Beth, Hello, How are you ? We are fine and in Durango. I just copied your Bad Ass Deer Spray recipe and need to use some ASAP. Saw some pic’s of your greenhouse, BEAUTIFUL and your photography, I love it. It looks like your staying really busy, us too, been working in the yard and flower beds cleaning, raking all the good stuff. Feels great to get my hands in the dirt. Got to go to Maui for 1 month this winter, I had some really good fun in the ocean.
    Let’s get together and catch up soon. Hope your doing well, you look great. Miss you, Ann

    Hope the bee’s are happy

      Hi Ann!
      It does feel good to dig in the dirt! We just put the roof on the greenhouse today, it is so wonderful. I’m going to move my seedlings in tomorrow. I will give you a call so we can catch up, miss you. I have some honey for you!!

    If you’ve got a somewhat grander scheme in mind, however, you’ll probably need to rent a
