Vegetable Garden at The Shepherd’s Off to a Good Start

We planted the vegetable garden this year at the end of May (the official beginning of growing season here in NW Montana). We thought some of you might like to see how it’s going. If you come for a visit, you can be sure we’ll be including these wonderful organic veggies in the menu. This is the third year we’ve been on the land, and we’ve been conditioning the soil each fall with lots of organic matter. It’s really making a difference.

By the way, this past week, Lynda and Art from BC came and volunteered. Art helped Dave get the cedar wood for the dining room walls stained. Lynda helped us with all kinds of office work, and she even did some editing for us on an upcoming book!


Corn (Knee high by 4th of July – we’ll see)

Spinach, lettuce, arugula, and Kale

Snow Peas

Red, White, and Gold Potatoes



Squash and cucumbers in Agribon covering (they don’t like the cold Montana nights)

Strawberry Patch

Tomatoes (also in Agribon). The cute sticks are made by a Down syndrome teen who lives in town.
