Weeds

Here are some great links to the Bonner County Public Works Noxious Weed Control with information on Sprayer Rentals, Calibrations, and Control Methods. With summer fast approaching and the weeds starting to take over might be a good time to take a look and see what is going to help you get rid of whatever weed you have!

Safety is IMPORTANT when setting up an electric fence. Whether you are an old hand or a tenderfoot, it pays to understand electricity and not take it for granted.

Here are a couple of links we believe will be helpful to all electric fence setters. Take a look!

Off Grid Refrigeration

Here is a pretty cool link for Off Grid Refrigeration. This would not be very practical out hiking, but here in the north where summer storm power outages CAN happen, this is an easy and inexpensive alternative to losing fresh food or medications. Let us know what you think!

How to Eat Better

oils and vinnegars  Wine and food  Pasta Avacado dish

Here is a foodie link we thought you might benefit from.  This site also promotes buying local whenever possible and shopping at Farmer's Markets in the season. We strongly support this idea because it allows us to know more about the food we consume, we are able to support local small businesses, and feel better in general.
