2017 24th Saturday Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
On Tuesday about a mile and a quarter from our farmhouse, we encountered this biker. It was unclear as we approached what kind of phenomena was ahead. I had Christina snap a couple of quick snapshots. We are not sure exactly what this was about; however, we are getting close to America’s 4th of July (Independence Celebration).
The alfalfa was cut a bit ago–the second, 2017 cutting. Yesterday it was raked. Today we see the big rectangle bales in the field. Soon they will be stacked at the end of the field, near the Union Pacific Railroad train tracks. We love every stage of the process.
The wheat fields are headed out in their glory and starting turn toward the golden harvest color. The corn is growing fast with this summer heat. Other crops that have been behind due to the tragically harsh winter are coming along well. It looks like summer in the Treasure Valley everywhere we look–as it should because we celebrated the Summer Solstice on Wednesday. It appears summer is going to bring the scorching heat.

On a very personal note
We have one outdoor floor pot blooming at our front door. The zinnias are about to burst into bloom. I cannot remember what color they were or even the variety. It will be a surprise. Thus far, despite the heat, the pansies have continued to thrive.
Cliff has been busy marking things off his ‘to do list, ‘ and it makes him smile. The front puppy yard was a sight. Those three (Bubbles X Tugman) girls we kept for the future did a number on that yard. Every litter destroys the yard with their little puppy feet. It is shocking to see how tough they are on those yards, but it is what it is. The three girls used the yard longer and added some special effects–the kind we like to avoid (holes). So, Cliff leveled and filled, and he is ready to plant some grass seed. We don’t need the yard anytime soon; therefore, we will plant rather than using sod.
