The 4th of July was incredible. We had family in town so took the grandsons to the Kalispell parade, City Beach in Whitefish and did fireworks late on the 4th. We older people struggled to stay awake since it gets dark so late in NW Montana. I don't remember the last time we stayed up late enough for fireworks!
It has been in the high 80's to 90's the last week. Have fun outside in the morning before it gets too hot. I used to tell clients they don't really need ac because we cool off so much at night, now I say it is mighty nice to have! My garden is taking off after the June rains and now the July heat. Spinach is all but done, strawberries are coming on like crazy, lettuce is abundant. Next will be tomatoes, peppers, carrots and raspberries.
Alpine Theatre Project kicks off the season this week. We are seeing Guys and Dolls for the first performance. Dinner in Whitefish, than a play, perfect way to spend a hot summer night.
Our hay crop is being cut this week between equipment breakdowns. Rounding up young, strong, kids to load the loft with hay when the bales are ready. Always so nice to get that done so we can carry on having summer fun.
