OwyheeStar Week Thirty 2016

Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon 

Ellen's FlowersThe hay is in the stack, and Cliff is irrigating again. The heat is pressing in on us, so it is extra important to keep the crops and lawns wet. Inside plant watering is necessary too! Nevertheless, my methods are rather odd. I throw the leftover iced tea, a bit of coffee, and sometimes some water at this lovely cyclamen. I got this potted flower as a gift (June 2, 2012) from my friend Ellen. She used to be my helper here at OwyheeStar for about three years. Anyhow, this plant was a gift when I had major surgery. It was blooming when I received it. Other than for about a two-week period, it has bloomed without fail year round. I seriously do nothing extraordinary for this plant; she is just the make the most of the soil in which you are planted and bloom type. I have never repotted her. I am afraid to do anything might lead to her demise. Silly me!

This Week on the Blog

Here are the week’s posts if you wish you review or visit them today! I think this week speaks to the delight of having a friend. The Weimaraner is an excellent companion if you understand them. If you want something like my cyclamen, you should check into a different breed. Nonetheless, here are some great reports–Maverick, Benson, and Cador are all Longhairs.

Monday — July 18 — Oh Yeah (Maverick and company @ the pool)

Tuesday — July 19 — Duke

Wednesday — July 20 — At Work  (Benson Dockside)

Product Review (We Love These!)

Chewy.com provides us with a product to review for them every month. This month it is the Zuke’s Tiny Naturals. If you have taken home the OwyheeStar packet, inside you found a few tiny treats. These grain-free tidbits are popular at OwyheeStar. First off, remember that each treat is counted as part of the diet. If you have an adult Weimaraner, while you don’t want their backbone showing, you also do not want them overweight.

That extra layer of fat can take one-five years off their life–a sobering fact we wish to ignore. We have used these to get compliance with crate training and for rewards. We don’t rely heavily on treats, but when we use them, it is almost without exception the tiny naturals.

On a very personal note

Evangeline Star QualityOur construction continues in the slow mode. We have searched around for more time even looking under a few rocks. So, we spent a bit of time to find none. It is laughable don’t you agree? 

This week’s big projects include hard wiring the computer workstation, and putting in some screws to hang a few things. Other things require our time and attention; I guess the many screaming projects have to wait for us. We have to take care of ourselves too! As you can see with our oldest great granddaughter working on her star quality, we need to live as long as it is possible. Then too, some of our Weim clients asked us to keep producing pups as long as possible for them. We have a lot to live for, and our business on this earth is not finished yet.

Thanks to You

There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are immensely grateful for those who continually provide us with the material for the blog. Unfortunately, sometimes this is only photos and no script. There is no end in sight of our farmhouse remodel. We are doing it ourselves, and it is the installment plan–we are not borrowing to do this. We buy something and install it. Therefore, having the updates is greatly appreciated than usual–it is always a blessing!

  1. she is sure a super star, what a cute girl! I had no clue that coffee and tea are good for cyclamen. I brought ours in the back yard, because it looked not good, think I will share my morning coffee with this plant from time to time now… thanks for a good tip :o)

    • go light but you can use coffee grounds in your soil mixture. I only use a tiny bit of coffee and weak iced tea. But the plant is in the original plastic container and still it blooms on and on.
