I took a peek at our rhubarb patch the other day; and there it was! RHUBARB!!!   In a few weeks time, there will be rhubarb pie.. rhubarb cake.. rhubarb muffins.. rhubarb panna cotta.. roasted rhubarb, and rhubarb sauce! And in about 2 months time, we will have had enough of rhubarb and strawberry season will be upon us. It looks like our strawberry plants did very well this winter; we have approx. 200-300 strawberry plants right now, with lots of little runners that I need to find homes for.

There are so many things that you can do with rhubarb, I would love to know what you do with yours! 🙂

Spring time in Telegraph Creek!

Spring is here! It was a very long winter, but we made it.  Things are slowly greening up- not as green as it used to be, but the green is there and it is amazing to see!    Some of the tree’s that burned are starting to bud out- it wont last long, but it looks very beautiful in the sunlight(picture posted above).

All of the snow in the yard is gone now, aside from a few piles here and there.  The mud isn’t too bad, but the dogs can sure track the dirt into the house! 

We had a long stretch of sunny days, but these last few days have been more cloudy and not as nice. We haven’t had to run the generator to charge much, so that is a bonus. 

It’s nice to hear the chickadee’s, the robins, and various other birds chirping and singing about. I’ve been filling the bird feeders and we seem to be getting more and more lately. There was not a single bird here all winter(aside from the Eurasian Collared Dove who lost it’s mate to a hawk), the birds are sure nice to have around.  

July is here!

July is here already; this summer is going by so fast! Thankfully we have had some good weather, the strawberries are loving it.
I am having to pick strawberries every day- we will enjoy the berries over the winter months to come! I am wondering what you do with your strawberries?

I made bagels a couple days ago and the guests just love them, it is a new recipe I tried out and I think I will be sticking with it!
I will be making some more today- they freeze so well! Pictured below, are plain and then “Epicures Everything Bagel”- its very yummy!

 I just wanted to share with you, the view from the top of our hiking trail! It takes approx. 30 minutes to reach the top, once you are up there there are chairs and rocks to sit on, while you take in the view!

We hope you are enjoying your summer! We look forward to having you stay here with us, or even if you are just passing through, stop in to say hello and have a cup of coffee!

Goodbye May, hello June!

Stingy Mountains with some fresh snow!

It’s hard to believe that May has come and gone!  We have officially been open for over a year now, it’s just crazy how time flies.    We have met so many amazing people, and heard so many stories and made many new friends!  Our guestbook is filled with so many wonderful little notes, I always enjoy reading it after a guest leaves.
Things are quite green around here, and its lovely!  The snow is all gone from Blueberry Mountain, and there is still a bit left on the Stingy mountains.  For a few mornings in a row, there was fresh snow on the Stingy Mountains. With the wind blowing through the valley here, it was quite chilly, and the stoves needed to be lit to take the chill off! Thankfully it seems warmer outside and we’ve even been leaving the door open. Thankfully the bugs have been very minimal- we haven’t even had to put any bug spray on the horses yet!

 Our Crab Apple tree is in full bloom and the bee’s are buzzing away. Our dog, Rose, enjoys sleeping under the tree during the day. 

I was checking out our strawberry patch the other day, and I saw this blue egg! Silly Robin…

Rhubarb, Sunshine, and a little snow!

Happy spring from Telegraph Creek! The horses are shedding, the dogs are tracking mud into our house, the robins are here and the snow is gone! (Whoooohoooo!) Aside from a few patches, our yard is pretty bare! I see green grass poking up in places, it’s pretty amazing! It was a pretty long winter, with -40c temperatures and not a lot of sun; we let the horses out into the pasture yesterday and they of course got a taste of the fresh green grass that was poking up! 🙂

I took a peek out at the garden and noticed the rhubarb is poking up out of the ground! I had totally forgotten about rhubarb… so in a few short weeks we will be feasting on the first Rhubarb pie of the season.

The other morning we had woken up to fresh snow on the mountains; it had poured rain all night and was a bit chilly out! We are still having to light the wood stoves to take the chill off inside.
