Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
August 8, 2020
Summer heat in the triple-digits is here. Farmers are pouring the water to their crops, town people to their lawns. Meanwhile, the sweet corn harvest and other fresh veggies are available at the Saturday market, the farm stands, and even the grocery.
Oregon schools and high school sports is an equally hot topic. The OSAA’s new calendar provides three distinct seasons from late December to late June with limited overlap between seasons.
Traditional Winter activities will take place in January and February (Season 2), followed by Fall activities in March and April (Season 3), with Spring activities occurring in May and June (Season 4). It means they plan for Spring Football and later start for basketball–probably fewer games for everyone. Most everyone is trying to make the most out of a difficult situation.
We are busy with the business of pups–go figure. We thought you might enjoy this behind the scenes video. Christina has been working with the pups inside the house and out on the lawn.
This Week On the Blog…
Thanks to our faithful OwyheeStar contributors–they make this all possible. We sincerely hope our readers enjoyed these updates as much as we did, too.
Once again, we find our supply of blog material running low again. If you can help, send me a note. It would be greatly appreciated.
If you have a story that you will let me share–I need at least three sentences and a decent photo. I prefer to receive it via email. (FYI–we only use stories that feature the OwyheeStar Weimaraner).

On a very personal note
Cliff is feeling better–but still has a way to go. We sincerely hope that this third round of treatment eradicates pneumonia and that it doesn’t rear its ugly head again. (OMG) He is still taking antibiotics–and yes, for those concerned, he also has probiotics.
Otherwise, things have been pretty much as usual. Cliff has been busy working on the shop and with the Weimaraners. We bought a new chest for a freeze dryer, which should arrive before the end of the month. I have been setting that up and getting things ready.
The garden is coming along nicely–considering the lateness of our planting. Cliff and I didn’t put a lot into the whole process early this spring. I am thrilled to see the Oxhart tomatoes are producing nicely. Those were our favorite tasting tomatoes last year. We have had two, which Cliff and I ate this week. More than anything in the garden, I am delighted that the Hibiscus that I grew from seed are producing blooms. The plants are small, but it is the first year. I hope they winter over–I think I will dig up half of the plants and put them inside the greenhouse for the winter.
