2018 Weekly Synopsis
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~JULY 21, 2018
The wheat harvest happened. Yesterday, Darci and Chris Payne’s crew came back to bale and cart off the straw. Now we wait to learn more from Detingers in Vale. Soon the back field will see work–preparation for going back to alfalfa.
The temperatures are hovering close to the triple-digit thing–hot. We are pouring the water to our garden as well as the lawn.
Manfred arrived –the future OwyheeStar Longhair Stud Dog. It remains to be seen how this saga unfolds. We intend to have him come alongside, and eventually fill Stackhouse’s position. He is adjusting nicely. We are working on socialization.

On a very personal note
We are well–staying out of the heat as much as is possible. I am most certainly not heat friendly anymore. (Haha) Well, less so than even a few years ago.
We have tried to keep the gardening work for the very early morning. We have the area reasonably well cleaned and looking neat–I think. At least we have the weeds cut, don’t you agree? Our garden–it might not be your cup of tea; however, we are using various farm finds. We think it is interesting. We are working on a budget. We don’t have unlimited time, cash, or opportunity to pull this project together. Some things were more successful than others. We hope to add and improve over the next couple of years. Then, we will see if Ashley still wants to garden with me or she attempts her our project.
Cliff is busy here and there–around the farm and with the Weims. The new air conditioner we purchased for the shop went out. Since we moved, some of the Weims have to stay out there and run the backfield. This situation means we have to have the shop air conditioned. Of course, we didn’t know what to expect. I hunted the receipt. We bought a top of the line unit from Home Depot. He went in to speak with them about the problem. They made it right–thank goodness. Regardless, Cliff had to manhandle the unit out and install the new one. He was feeling it last evening.
