A blog about life in the Bella Coola Valley and the Central Coast area of British Columbia for anyone interested in an incredible and rich part of BC's coast. I hope to provide my thoughts about things as simple as weather observations and seasonal issues, to comments about life and the natural history in the Bella Coola Valley, the Central Coast and the west Chilcotin area.

As in most of Canada I am certain, the May long weekend is the big gardening weekend. It's traditionally a time of 'frost freedom' with some certainty in most gardening locales and a time to get at it and get the soil ready and the less hardy plants in the ground. We've had a cool May so far this year in the Bella Coola Valley and I waiting till June to put out a few tomato plants - they always catch up anyway. I'll be fallowing and rebuilding soil mostly this year, as I'm recovering from a bit of a back injury and decided to focus on other yard and building chores to catch up. It's our first time in 25 years without a substantial most 'of our veggie supply garden, so we'll just have to support the farmers market this year. Grizzly
