Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
September 26, 2020
In Treasure Valley, we have fall weather–farmers are still working although many of the fields are emptied and prepared for the winter. We still have our beautiful alfalfa.
As you can see, our sky is somewhat gray–although a bit of rain arrived last evening. Possibly this will clear out some of the hazy smoke that has settled in the valley.
The pups have our attention–and from here on out until they leave, we will be extraordinarily busy with them. Here are two of SnowAngel’s pups–a Longhair and a smooth coat. They are two weeks old but look at the difference in size. We have one tiny pup–call it a runt if you want, but he is healthy and thriving by all appearances.
For those wondering, the little guy is already promised. The only thing we have left is one Longhair–and we are positive she will be promised soon. (Haha)
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 and I have been doing some food preservation–more than we have done for the last few years. As you know, we have the Freeze Dryer. That is an entirely new adventure–we are enjoying it a lot. Our shelves are too sparse, but we are making progress.
We have freeze-dried watermelon, mandarin oranges, mango, and cantaloupe–and let’s not forget the candy. Tootsie rolls are Cliff’s favorite. I love the new pantry shelves–they are sturdy, functional, and nice-looking.
Otherwise, what little time Cliff has remaining finds him in the constant battle with goat heads (puncture weeds). It only takes a moment, and you have a crop coming–if only farming were that easy.
