Ah, yes the smell of spring and Pickle Butte

  • Print

Spring is definitely in the air......The Capital City market opens Saturday and the Race to Robie Creek, also Saturday.  Tracy's looking forward to planting tomatoes.  He's watching Pickle Butte for the snow to melt.  While the rest of us are watching Schafer Butte.  Okay, since we corrected him he claims now his favorite thing about spring is when Pickle Butte starts smelling, that when he can wear shorts.  Yea, we call him the Farmer's Almanac of Canyon County. 

What is important is to avoid the need to look like you have a tan.
