I’ve just returned from a work trip to southwestern Montana where it seems that most people don’t plant gardens. In towns, out on the ranches, I saw little sign of tomatoes or lettuces, even kale or broccoli tended in neat rows or clustered in raised beds. And vegetables that do grow? They fold up early. Indeed, the Bozeman Farmers’ Market shut down in mid-September; the natural foods’ cooperative offered few local fruits or vegetables; a downtown restaurant served us the last of the local greens for the year.
