I've been gardening in N. Idaho for about 30 years (Spirit Lake).
I've put pictures of my garden and some of the tools I've made and used on my webpage. http://sondahl.com/indexgarden.html

I enjoyed your webpage, about your chickens, do you let them free range out of their cage? I would like to get some and let them just stay in at night, however I have 3 very large hawks living nearby and I am afraid they might get them, what do you think?
we fish there in the lake all summer. the kokanie are mighty good. As a matter of fact we were there just last week. Didn't get our limit but it was not bad.
