Mercurial Mother Nature, Summer Hail Storm



The Summer Storm


I had to wonder, What the "hail" is this? I listened to the crashing and banging sounds on the roof our home. The frozen ice chunks fell viciously from the sky to the ground.



I was worried about the horses, they ran into the tree line instead of seeking shelter in the barn. When they emerged, they were covered with ice, but unharmed.


                                      


This is how much ice accumulated on the ground after the storm was over.  It was just another summer day in Montana.

The breathtaking Sunsets of Montana.


The Montana Skies



Visit our Montana mountain homestead, and view the gorgeous sunsets from our front porch.  Every night, I look to the sky for the ever-changing glorious patterns of light and shadow. Take 2 minutes, a deep breath, and enjoy these color drenched skies.

Cimarron is the name of the home featured in my books, "Go West, Young Woman!" and "Stay West, Young Woman!".

If you enjoyed this video, I suggest you watch Ep: 5 "Montana Sunsets" on my YouTube channel, Nancy Quinn-Life in the Wild West.

What's growing in the greenhouse?





What's growing in the greenhouse?


I receive a lot of questions about growing vegetables, and requests to see the greenhouse. It's hard to grow anything on our mountainside homestead in Montana.  This is our best year yet, and I'm constantly learning about growing food for our table.  I hope you enjoy this little tour of our built by hand greenhouse. You may pick up an innovative idea or two that will help you grow your own vegetables and flowers.

Meet Our Wildlife Construction Crew!



We have a lot of do-it-yourself outdoor building and maintenance projects to complete on the homestead during the summer.  See who stops in to "assist us" with our work.  Some of our "hired help" works for peanuts!

Easy Refrigerator Jam




Strawberry Refrigerator Jam





This recipe is so easy-no canning required!  It's a family favorite here on the homestead. I have made two batches of it, and neither one lasted a full day. This jam is not just for your morning toast. From my kitchen to yours, with love...
Enjoy!
