New name, new digs

In an effort to better reflect their garden’s relationship with the Ennis area, community gardeners in Jeffers have renamed their prized plot and market to the Community Garden and Market for Greater Ennis.

What makes your garden grow?

The death of my first Roma tomato plant nearly a decade ago haunts me to this day. The beautiful specimen, carefully planted in a large pot for easy relocation from indoors to outdoors, was doing swimmingly. Green tomatoes were just ripening red when I left it on the porch on a lovely July day in Big Sky.

Faith and gardening

Debbie Rogers delights in the natural world. Everyday she is out in it – horseback riding, hiking, and then digging around in the dirt of her organic garden. The chickens cluck and the rooster struts, all pecking at the dirt, ridding the garden of invaders. Raspberry bushes provide sustenance and shade on hot days.
