    It was the most recommended by locals. All rye would have been better for my needs but a lot of the ranchers here plant the mix around this time a year for a cover crop and livestock winter grazing as a bonus. Then the other grasses come up in the spring for more grazing before they till it in. I’m gonna leave a strip to mature this spring for my rabbits and till the rest in for the veggie garden.

    Not a lot to update, but I will. The rabbits still aren’t breeding but I keep trying. The one I thought might have been pregnant when I got her built a nest but hasn’t pulled fur. If she hasn’t kindled buy next week then she isn’t pregnant because that’s when I got her and they’ve been separated since arriving here. The cattins (half cat half kitten) are doing great and spend the days out of their kennel. They’re still not real big yet so I put them in at night. They’re catching rodents like crazy which it fantastic!! They love it here and will be a much appreciated member of the team. They get a can of tuna twice a week as a treat for all their hard work. On top of their twice daily dry food.

    It’s canyon ferry reservoir. It’s a dam on the Missouri River.

    If my memory is correct, the Missouri River starts in the mountains of Montana. It's actually longer than the Mississippi.

    Right you are!!!! I had followed it south from the lake MtViking went to and it split into smaller rivers. I ASSUMED!!! that was the end of it. I didn't realize it was flowing north
