GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON
~July 6, 2019
They are back for the next cutting–it should be in the stack soon.
The new bales from the back field (a new planting this spring) didn’t hold–it toppled over. Our hay guy had to send someone to stack again. (OMG) I am waiting to see how this end up–the new hay is stacked three bales high. Will they put the next cutting on top or continue stacking three high at the end of the stack?
This week we have been working with the pups –giving them various experiences. This work includes what I sometimes call bag-time. It is practicing crate-training. Some don’t mind it and others pitch a huge fit. (Haha)
Here is Hope
Hope turned 16-weeks old. We have wanted to grab some photos of her–and I need to get her Titer Test Scheduled. She is a sweet thing.

~At The Old Farmhouse
In our Garden 369–we see a lot. (Haha) Our cutting flowers are coming on. Ashley and the girls were able to take home an arrangement for their dining table–we used the blooming parsley like you would Baby’s breath. It worked quite well as we don’t have Baby’s breath in our garden. We picked our first cucumber. Maybe you remember from last year that cucumbers are the girl’s favorite. Of course, we are picking zucchini–the peas are gone.
Ashley pulled the peas along the fence. Right after that, I discovered a lot of worms. We looked them up–they appeared to be inch worms–but some of them could also have been cabbage loopers –the pictures look similar–both are fluorescent green. They were quite lovely, yet we don’t want them. There was also cutworms — as well as cutworm pupas. It was all fascinating. I am sure the bed with our beets and lettuce also has them. (OMG)
Cliff had been in a battle with the wheel line and other irrigational challenges around our property. With the imposing heat, he has to keep on it. There is no room for downtime. There is the ever prevalent battle with the weeds–the constant with the Weims.
