BLACK HILLS POULTRY SOCIETY

    For many area gardeners having a garden and having a flock of chickens seems natural. We are pleased to have the activities of the recently formed Black Hills Poultry Society posted on www.BlackHillsGarden. You will find here a calendar of upcoming events, perhaps some photos of folks and their favorite birds along with all the good reasons that gardens and chickens seem to go together (not to mention their delicious eggs!)

The mission of the society is to promote the keeping, breeding and exhibition of poultry of all kinds and to provide guidance and information from the wealth of experience from the most accomplished members.

The goal is to provide a fun, friendly atmosphere and encourage people of all ages to becomes involved with all breeds of poultry.

The group meets the third Friday of every month 6:30 p.m. at the West River Electric Association community meeting room. 

Persons who might be interested in keeping small flocks of chickens are  welcome to contact the society members at the information given below.

Miss Gardening? Grow Green Beans Indoors This Winter

 

Read now

 

For gardeners who just can’t stand to keep their hands out of the soil for any length of time, growing food indoors in containers can be a great pastime during the winter months.

 

Green beans are a relatively quick-growing vegetable that can be grown inside your home and also look quite beautiful, as well.

 

Plants that you are growing indoors can be started any time of the year, but you still need to remember that they have certain environmental requirements. Green beans need plenty of light, so you will need to place them in a part of your home where they can get a minimum of six hours of sunlight each day. Alternatively, grow lights can work if you do not have a window that gets enough sun.
