Hello From OwyheeStar
~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners
October 3, 2020
October in the Treasure Valley–the weather is lovely. Warmer daytime temperatures, and then it cools off overnight. So far, the gardens are safe from frost–no covering is needed, but it won’t be long before we are clearing out some garden plants.
Our tomatoes are still producing. Oh–and the alfalfa got a trim yesterday–the last cutting is in the works. But not everyone is done work–this gopher is diligent and elusive–maybe Cliff can catch him yet.
Alan Montgomery, Montgomery Farms owner, is busy planning the annual Corn Maze, and the family has chosen an appropriate theme–‘Look to the Future’. They made adjustments, which include eliminating activities that do not accommodate social distancing. It is good news to read that the Corn Maze is happening–don’t you agree? This photo courtesy of Alan Montgomery, and it makes us smile.
The pups have our attention–and from here on out until they leave (at the end of the month), we will be extraordinarily busy with them. It doesn’t require much imagination to understand keeping up with these busy little guys is challenging–but rewarding. (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
There is nothing much new here–food preservation, the garden, and repairs. Cliff is fixing things–the PT Cruiser, the Jeep, the Gator, and a plumbing leak, to mention a few. Oh, and when he can find a spare moment, he is working on shelving and trim. Another door arrived–delivered at almost 9 PM a couple of evenings ago. He had a notification that it was on the truck at 8:30 AM–we had wondered if it was lost, but no. Thank goodness.
I made Darci’s tomato soup from the garden tomatoes–Darci is part of the Hay Family (that takes excellent care of our needs) and lives nearby. I saw her Facebook post and decided to give it a try. For whatever reason, I have never been able to make decent tomato soup, before. I loved it so much. I also canned bean with ham soup–it turn out nicely, too. (Hurrah!)
