The Musical “Cypress Hills Would Never Be the Same” was a delightful night!

I was lucky enough to go out last night for the amazing Historical Musical Drama – The Cypress Hills would never be the same! It was filled with great local talent and written by Stew Tasche chronicling the Cypress Hills from 1860 to 1883. I enjoyed the set design and the how the characters interacted throughout the crowd! It was an incredible performance. I learned so much about the era last night, I find myself recapping it to everyone I talk with today…and the music was fantastic!

You can pick up the soundtrack CD for only $15. To pick up your CD and to help support local talent, just email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 306-773-0238.

Broke soil for #EarthDay

Don't plant the dill next to the carrots, keep your asparagus on an end of your garden, have at least two rows of corn... I guess it's not as simple as breaking ground and planting seeds with the occasional soak from the sprinkler!

This year I thought I would test out my green thumb, wish me luck! Gardening is a delicate hobby and not as easy as one might think! Thanks to my dad for coming out to break the ground with the rototiller last night, apparently I have the perfect spot for growing so the odds are in my favor before I even plant one seed!

I used to enjoy sneaking into my grandparents garden to steal strawberries, an occasional carrot and more peas than I could successfully hide in my bunny hug pouch! For my first time around I acquired all of the above with the addition of Norland Potatoes, spinach and I'm still on the lookout for strawberry runners.

As I eagerly sat down to start some of my seeds I was marking down the days to sprout for a countdown of sorts, almost like an advent calendar for the gardener! I went to circle the day they were planted, low and behold it was Earth Day! I'd like to think I was a part of the cause yesterday!

To answer the questions you might have from the beginning of this post... I don't know why you don't plant dill next to carrots, asparagus will grow for a few years so planting it on an end will help you avoid turning it the following year, and you need more than one row of corn so that it will pollinate and produce amazing nib-lets!

What did you do for Earth Day? I'd love any gardening tips, tricks, suggestions you may have! @kyla_olson
