But the season has gone far enough so I can provide my input on what a Kalispell winter is like. Or can I? Apparently, the winter of 2019-2020 has been one of the mildest the Flathead Valley ha...

Rarely do my plants stay alive, so this is not intended to be a manual on how to successfully tend vegetable gardens in the Flathead Valley. That being said, I did recently attend a local vegetable gardening cla...

Yesterday I had the good fortune to be able to host a small get-together at my Kalispell home. I wanted to be able to get to know some of my neighbors a little better, and of course to be able to cook for company. Two things that I love to do! We've been in our home for a month and we finally got...

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm finally living in my new Kalispell home. The home is located at the far end of a nearly 30 acre parcel of property. Behind us are several miles of wilderness, which means two things. First, we have a relatively long driveway and second, animals abound in o...

New neighbors were up for coffee a few days ago, and we were talking about all sorts of things. The condition of our road, the highway department, life in general, and then the subject of neighbors came up. And we were given the "rules of the road" for neighboring. Apparently, there are two rules...

Do you want to live at the base of the Swan mountains? Where the traffic is nearly non-existent? With lots of space to breath? And only be about twenty minutes from the center of Kalispell, and just as close to Bigfork? If yes, read on! Whitetail Meadows is located east of Kalispell. Specifically...
