      I did focus more on gardening today. Planted pansies and geraniums. BUT I now better than to plant tomatoes too soon. Not yet, Must wait a few weeks.They'll be safe being portable.

      We have bears and deer plus many turkeys and very short growing season. I hope to get a greenhouse together for the next season. In my old place in Huntley , Montana , I had a huge garden with irrigation. Corn, beans, beets, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries, etc. I love gardening. Too many bugs and too hot in Tx. where we lived.Herbs were the only survivors.

      Nye, Montana about 45 minutes away. Beautiful area in the foothills to the Absoroka range. Former mining town now vacation homes. Gallery is only open for summer and this week heavy spring snow knocked out the power.

      That has been one long process. Glad it's coming to an end for you so you can focus on what you love instead of moving boxes!

      Ha ha. I wish I could slow down. Tomorrow four projects on the house we're selling in TX. replace cracked tiles, fixed garage door opener, and spackle nail holes and paint, and replace a section of broken pipe on the sprinkler system. Hoping to start back to Montana Thursday.

      I bet it feels good in your hand. I am in Cottonwood, AZ right now. Is this near the red rock area you were firing at?

    2. Marcia Selsor

      Marcia Selsor

      No. Red Lodge is in Montana and the same town I live in.

      I thought it was in Montana but you travel so much. Everything around here is called Red Rock something.

  22. Long day yesterday. Shifts for firing began at 9 pm. Great crew firing the kiln. Should be a good productive way to spend a few days firing the kiln.

      As someone who has to go-it-alone, I envy anyone who has a crew or community that comes together for any clay activity.

  23. we start loading the train kiln today. Snowed last night. Bringing a pot of lentil soup for lunch for the crew.

      So how long will the fires be stoked?

  24. tis is a first for me, Threw in the morning trimmed in the afternoon and loaded that evening. Had to get the firing done. Lost three pieces out of about 50. But now I have enough to fill my allotted amount for the up coming wood firing. So happy to be getting some finished pieces soon. It has been a while since I broke down my studio in Nov.The electricity was connected to my kiln shed last Thurs. All kilns are functioning after their 1780 mile journey north.

      It was porcelain. Babu. I didn't like throwing it but the handles were good. and didn't crack. Very forgiving but I like Colemen better.

  25. Fired my first bisque in Red Lodge last night. After several different delays due to online missing attachments on both sides, myself and the electric company, I finally have power to the kilns, Just in time to prepare for next week's wood firing with the Red Lodge clay Center.
