Columbia Valley BC: Radium, Invermere, Fairmont, Canal Flats etc. Sounds like we're further north.

Nor did I! The climate will be much better where you are. I was thinking if you were in this part of the Columbia Valley, we would be able to compare notes on the Saraev varieties. :-)

yeah... no such luck . The climate here is very mild, just around 31-32F average low / 44F average high for January, and above freezing all the other months. But we will not be able to grow anything in winter, as the mountains to the south block the sun completely from mid-Nov to mid-Jan. Not that we get much sun here in winter anyway... it is always overcast and rain.

Tania it looks amazing!!! So happy for you.
That virgin soil looks really good as well. Not bad at all to start with! And the birds will make it good and rich in no time. And it's awesome that the climate is so mild, even if you do have a 'winter shadow' for a couple of months from those beautiful mountains.

Oh my, Tania! What a gorgeous view to the lake, and such an idyllic spot to live in peace and privacy! It will be a lot of work getting everything built and set up and moving your flock, but so worth it! I'll be looking forward to more pictures and updates on your progress.

It looks wonderful, Tania. You must feel like a pioneer sodbuster.

What a wonderful place to relocate to. It is gorgeous and pristine. The soil appears to be just beautiful and looks to be a deep layer of topsoil full with organic matter. What a nice way to start a new garden. Most of us have to try to convert clay into something that resembles topsoil.

You should be quite happy there.
