plums, maybe

Two scraggly, neglected plum trees came with the property. I was skeptical they’d produce fruit this year since the young plums looked so runty. Today I see a few starting to ripen, though. Maybe we’ll have plums this year after all!

seasonal mashup

Our lone maple is already wearing its fall colors, while temps remain in the 80s. Feels like a seasonal mashup.

what’s up at planet b?

Plant B Gardens is just getting started. We moved here at the end of June 2014 with the goal of building a sustainable homestead in beautiful, rural Montana. The vision is to grow productive flower, herb, and vegetable gardens, install a greenhouse and small apiary, plant fruit and nut trees, and create meandering paths through the pines bordered by an occasional sprinkling of wildflowers and berry patches.
