2019 Weekly Synopsis
GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~May 25, 2019
Our May weather is a bit wet. The Malheur Experiment Station keeps a record of the rain–they say that we had received 1.83 inches of rain so far in May. I am guessing we will add to that number again today.
The rain affects the harvest when it comes to our alfalfa–again, we are glad it wasn’t cut and on the ground when the recent pours arrived. It would not have been an advantageous situation–instead, it might have meant not getting anything marketable. The rain seems to have been most beneficial for the other local crops–everything looks to be doing well.
The most significant thing I think is that school is out–teachers are wrapping up anything last minute thing and escaping for summer vacation. I remember the long summers as a kid–they were great. I always looked forward to getting back to school, though.
We are busy with Bernie’s babies. They are growing and changing. We hope you enjoy this little video.
Meanwhile, we are working on the puppy yards–and as we have mentioned, we are installing some outdoor water lines.
This Week On the Blog…
Thank you to each of you who contributed something that we used for a blog. We hope everyone enjoyed the stories as much as we did.
For several weeks we had been looking for the perfect placement for Bart (Atti X Stackhouse) –a Gray Longhair Puppy. His first placement family opted just before the exit to wait for a future Longhair. So, then we needed a new home for him. Yesterday’s blog featured him and his family. He is doing really well.

On a very personal note
~The Garden and Around the Farmhouse
The gardening continues, but the Gardening girls have not been able to come by recently. There isn’t all that much to do anyhow. We do have a few plants to get in the ground, but all-in-all we have the garden planted.
~It a Maze–holes of various sizes and sorts
Cliff is working on the waterline installation. Not all the digging is Cliff–something else looks to be making another type of hole. I believe this is an active vole tunnel–more bait needed soon–don’t want to use it but nothing else is working.
Other than running a little short on energy, we are doing well.
