I am SO excited to find your blog! An actual Locavore from Idaho - how amazing is that?!?! You sound like you from the Blackfoot/Pocatello area. I lived in Poc until 2004, then moved up here to Coeur d'Alene to be closer to my daughter & her family (and my grandson!) Since then, my other daughter & family (and 2 more grandsons!) have moved here also. I found you while reading Melinda's (Elements in Time) list of folks participating in The Growing Challenge. I do garden - had a wonderful garden in Poc. - the tomatoes & peppers loved that climate! I'm finding that gardening is a bit different up here in northern ID - milder climate, lower elevation, etc.The first morning I saw dew on the ground, I thought it had rained overnight - I had forgotten what dew looked like!Anyway, sorry for rambling - I don't have a blog yet; only have Internet access at work right now.But I'll be back to read more!Carla in North Idaho
Hi Carla! *waves in the general direction of North Idaho!*Glad to meet you, too! We have some friends in your area - lucky you - it's so pretty up there! Idaho in general is actually a pretty awesome place to live, and I'm loving it here more every year. Yes, I'm in the Pokie/Blackfoot area. One of the things that I love about this area is how garden-crazy everyone is. And you can grow a lot more here than you would think, I'm finding out. I've gardened mostly in the south before we moved here, and I was worried I'd not be able to harvest much with the much shorter season - but I'm happy to say I was wrong. Thanks for the note, and let me know if you get a blog up! Take care!
