Hello From OwyheeStar

~Cliff, Shela, and the Weimaraners

Sunrise October 21 2017

October means a freeze is not far off–it should arrive this week. For now, produce stands are brimming with a wide variety of Treasure Valley vegetables. I have only pulled out the sunflowers and cut back the banana squash and zucchini vines that had grown into the driveway.

Our tomatoes are still producing and need to be picked. We ought to remove about half the tomato plants and keep a couple of them protected as the temperature drops. Oh–and the alfalfa that had been trimmed last Friday found its way into a mini-stack alongside the road. We are not sure what that is about–but it is cute. Cliff will tie the wheel lines together and trap gophers–the latter are very busy preparing for winter.



The pups are keeping us ultra busy. Yesterday, we were at the Three Cliff’s Sanctuary with Henrietta’s group. They loved being there. There are so many smells.

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.

It is a considerable challenge to get new (fresh) information for this blog. I even contemplated giving up–because most everyone posts their OwyheeStar Weim’s story directly. So many people write saying how important these stories are to them–often beginning their day with the new OwyheeStar News Blog. We appreciate your faithfulness. If you can help, send me a note. It would be much 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

We don’t have a lot to report. We are doing well-meaning we are keeping up with everything. (Haha) I canned more tomato soup this week. I am done canning tomato soup, I think. I know we would use all of it in the next year, so if I happen to have the time, the inclination, and the right jars available, I may do another batch.

No Mice in the Farmhouse, Please

Cliff is trying to prepare for winter–there are many things to be done–to be winterized. It is always the time when mice come searching for a way to get inside. (Eke) It is an old farmhouse–so there are places they can find.

Ambrosia has stayed busy Freeze-drying our garden fare. There is more zucchini in right now. It is surprising how sweet freeze-dried zucchini tastes. I plan to use a lot of it as flour. Quite a few people use the zucchini flour –replacing a portion of their recipe flour with the low-carb and healthy powdered zucchini. I have not yet tried using it, but I an excited about the idea. I also have tomato powder, lemon powder, and lime powder. For now, I am gathering the various ingredients that can be used in cooking. The only powder I have in abundance is tomato–OMG.
