yesterday you could see and feel the sunshine! of course the sun is always there, but missoula is known for gloomy winters so spring is always a warm welcome. i’m not going to go as far as to say that spring is here because we’ll probably get more snow at some point. but yesterday truly felt like spring and all we wanted to do was be outside.
we went to church, went to a friend’s house for lunch, planned meals for the week, went grocery shopping and then came home and got in the dirt. this will be our first year gardening at this house; thankfully there is already a fenced in garden area but it needed some tidying up. on went the carhartts and garden gloves and we began to turn over soil and make room for more growing space. as we were working randy said, “do you want to grill out tonight? it’s so nice outside i feel like we should grill some venison steaks and veggies.” so back to the grocery store i went to get some veggies for the grill (impulse grocery shopping = not ideal, but when my dear husband wants to get the grill growing for meat AND veggies?! i’m on it.).
and then it was time for some good eats. it’s nice having a freezer stocked with various cuts of venison so that you can spur the moment do meals like venison steaks on the grill!
it’s supposed to stay in the 50’s for the next few days, which is wonderful! makes for great running, hiking and gardening weather. it’s already time to transplant some of our seedlings in to bigger trays because they’ve grown so much!
