2017 18th Saturday Recap

Onions and the storage destroyed when the building collapsed
The weather has been a constant social media topic, and for a good reason. It has been a bit crazy–even more than usual. The winter’s snow took down a lot of structures despite gallant efforts to remove the snow load from roofs. The cleanup is still going on, and while facing sizeable economic losses, the government has let Malheur County know they will not receive Federal dollars for storm recovery according to the Malheur Enterprise.
The durable farmers are out planting for another season. As recent as this week we saw beans going in, and that seems late, but the weather kept everyone behind schedule. Nonetheless, the fields surrounding OwyheeStar are greening up. It is eye-candy of the best kind who live the Treasure Valley. The weeds come on full force ahead of the crops. Our neighbors have corn planted under their pivot, and our hay seems to be doing well. Then there are Cliff’s Coturnix Quail that are beginning to hatch. We will share more in a blog this week, but here is a quick peek.
We moved the eggs to the hatching tray about three days ago. Our little quail have emerged from the shell. Now we have to get a place for them to move.

On a very personal note
There is not much to report. We spent the week trying to recoup and at the same time to keep up. I have been trying to do some cleaning because I have gotten behind for a lot of reasons. I wanted to get right on the painting, but I was coughing too much to consider it. Nevertheless, I am hoping to get to it in the next few days.
I had to change my diet because the medication I had been given reeked havoc on my gut and it is so tender that healing is an issue. Nevertheless, I believe I am getting better. Eight months is a long time to be ill, but then I am reminded many live with something until the end. I as well as Cliff hope I win this particular battle soon. I’ve gone back to the more Holistic approach to dealing with this health crisis because traditional medicine has failed me. We are not all the same.
