Fall Checklist Off the Grid

Don’t forget the bears!

Living off the grid can inspire us to grow our own food, including apple trees.  Be mindful that the bears really appreciate this token of generosity and will make night raids to enjoy the sweet snacks while  in the process wreak havoc on your trees.

Branches will be broken and apples munched away in no time, so be prepared to harvest your fruits as soon as feasible.  BEFORE the bears do what bears do… help themselves!

Fall in Helena

Local Apples

Take time to smell the apples as your evening walks take you through the neighborhood.  One of life’s simple pleasures can provide a great aromatherapy to the soul!  These gorgeous local apples were given to us by friends here in East Helena and made an awesome batch of  hand-pies! Helena is a great climate for tasty back-yard apples and those coveted, sweet, end of the year tomatoes.
