GREETINGS FROM FAR EASTERN OREGON

~September 28, 2019

Sunrise October 21 2017

The weather–it is always a thing. I don’t believe we are slated to get snow on the valley floor–but there are snow advisories for Idaho and Montana. The Montana thing seems concerning–it is too early for a blizzard.

Our alfalfa is cut and drying–curing. We got a little rain in the last couple of days (.006 of an inch)–more than we would like. We want it dry and warm enough to prepare the cutting for being baled. The sooner, the better–but it has to be ready. Too much moisture would be a very bad thing. So, we let the crop has the time needed and hope for good weather to get it ready to bale.

Ontario High School winning culture is struggling. Their football team just took another beating by Baker City. The school leadership is trying to build the right environment–academically and for their extracurricular activities. I love that they resurrected something from back in the day when we were in high school–the Home Coming Parade. Thanks to the Malheur Enterprise for these photos and the story.

AT OWYHEESTAR

Hattee’s pups continue to thrive–the weight gains are extraordinary. They are little fatties. (OMG) What else would we expect with only the four babies?

Here is the only Gray in the litter–click the photo to see more of the same–

On a very personal note

Our week seemed fairly uneventful, again. Maybe you read that I had a tooth extracted on Thursday–it went well, and the recovery thus far has been smooth sailing.

The Gardening Girls are missing–we didn’t hear from them. I think the gardening phase has passed. Ashley is expecting her third baby in January–it will be our first Great Grandson. We have these two lovely Great Granddaughters. We have been blessed to spend so much time together.

Meanwhile–Christina and I have been clearing out the garden. We have left a few tomato plants we plan to try to protect–to prolong the fresh tomato season. Most everything else (the zucchini, the cucumbers, the peppers, etc.) are cleaned out. I am sad to see them go–but Cliff and I use so little that we will plant less next year.

  2. I love the puppy photos😍❣️

    How do you store your 🌶 peppers? I have to figure out what to do with ours. 😊

  3. I have the same problem. Last year I strung UP to dry–I didn’t do a good job. I don’t have the knack but it was gorgeous for a while. Now it is looking a little bare in spots. I also fermented jalapenos–but we don’t eat that many. I have the better part of two jars in the extra refrigerator. Most of these were grown because Ashley wanted them–she is overwhelmed. A lot is the pepperoni–I am thinking of pickling them for her, but not sure. Honestly, I am lost. I have way more than I want. Maybe I will make fermented hot sauce. I think we would use that. Oh–and I am using quite a few in some sweet n sour sauce I am canning. I have never canned it before. Typically I freeze it –but canned would be nice. I found a recipe so I am working on that today. I guess I will be looking for ideas, too.
