We live near Sandpoint Idaho, VERY cold & snowy weather, lots of pine trees as that is about all our poor sandy soils can grow. 15 acres, small creek, all on a private dirt road you can loose your pickup into the chuckholes if you don't drive slow. I just LOVE it! We have been using Biodynamic methods to improve our garden soils for several years now and can grow a wonderful garden now. 30 new chicks, mixed types arrived today, to join our 6 pullets, and 4 guinea fowl. also started 2 bee hives last week.
