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.

The 2013 gardening season had a strange pattern. It was warm at the end of March and early April, warm enough to get the garden ready and put in a bit of spinach and radishes. When I planted the main season crops around the May long weekend, the weather just went downhill from there. Cold and wet. I had serious doubts I'd see corn and tomatoes this year. Then July hit and it was a different world. The gardens exploded and the corn made up lost time. I'm on track for a bumper crop in the next 10 days or so, early for me. Grizzly
