Going Local This Summer

We're still firing up the furnace from time to time here at the end of the road, and sleeping under the electric blanket each night. But signs of summer are starting to show up, like the 2011 "Go Local" summer guide to small businesses in western Montana. Our "Huckleberry Heart" image graces the cover. Across the state, our stashes of last year's frozen fruits have long since dwindled away into stacks of pancakes, muffins and breads. Picking fresh wild berries is one of those dreams that dances through our heads this time of year, even though the huckleberry flowers are just starting to form and the berries won't be ripe until August. Some things are worth waiting for.
