2017 29th Saturday Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~July 29, 2017
We returned home last evening after having dinner in town to find the hay baled and they baler leaving the field. We are happy to forego any toad-strangling rain storms before it was captured into bales. It was an eventful week as weeks go. Not every situation was ideal as many of you realize.
The Sage X Boone litter was due at the earliest on Wednesday (July 24th), but they decided to make their appearance at least two days early on Monday. That is never a good thing. Many of you are aware we ended up with one living pup–tears have been shed.
Sage is shocked and trying to cope; we are all working to keep the remaining pup alive. Thus far, he is doing well. This example is yet another reason predictions (about future puppy availability) is nothing short of fickle. Anyhow, we wanted to share this cute little Blue survivor’s photo with you.

On a very personal note
The Cyclamen watch continues. There is at least one bud lifting its head–possibly a couple more are in the works too! It is amazing when you consider the entire top sheered off when I tried to get it out of the root engorged glass container. I held out for a good outcome. Hope is a beautiful thing and it something we ought to have growing in any garden we tend.
In going through some of my canning supplies I found an old package of wide mouth canning lids (no bands included) priced at a $ 1.43, but I see you can purchase them at Walmart for $ 2.98. I am tossing this packet, but it has the price which made it interesting.
Cliff has been working on various projects including some laying pens for his Coturnix Quail which are producing a lot of eggs. The secret in using these highly nutritious eggs is to buy yourself a set of quail egg scissors. Yes, they are a thing. They make the task of opening the tiny eggs simple. He has been working on things at his shop–including the tractor which seems to hiccup all too frequently. The whelping room and the utility bath have also seen him this week. A little here and there plus all the farm and Weim requirements equal more than a full day.
