Easter weekend was a great weekend to plant trees and do a little farm yard maintenance this year. We were able to plant 50 Engelmann Spruce and 150+ Silver Buffaloberry (Shepherdia argentea) bushes, set three gates and board up some broken windows in the barn. After three days of sun it looks like we have a week of rain ahead, should be great for the trees. 🙂 Hopefully in a few years the trees will be big enough to give the pheasants some food and places to hide.
While driving up to Canada to get Scud we stopped by the farm to check on things. It’s was nice and sunny and there quite a few birds (pheasants) from what I could see. Here are a few photos I took on the way up to Canada, mostly around the farm and towards the Sweetgrass Hills.
This past April we planted about 500 Russian Olive trees. It was a grueling 2 days of work! Lots of sun, trees, digging & watering. Hopefully the trees will root well and make it. Give it 10+ years and the pheasants should have some great additional habitat.
Big thanks to Krist & Ron for helping us!
Second weekend over at the farm. My father-in-law, George Bingham, came along with his dog Duke.
