Hello From OwyheeStar

Sunrise October 21 2017

Naked fields are everywhere, but some of them that appear to be bare ground may not be–if you look closely, you will see winter wheat popping up. The sugar beet harvest is in full bloom–between here and town, we saw a few fields ready for harvest.

Our hay is coming back, but there won’t be another cutting this year. Nevertheless, I love looking at the green field compared to bare ones.

AT OWYHEESTAR

We have puppy exits going from now until the end of the month. That will keep us very busy–on the road and around the home front, too. We use the wagon quite a bit–it works well for pulling to the sanctuary and when we need to move pups around.

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

Our new pellet stove is up and running–but we are using the old pellets we bought two years ago. It runs well, but the start-up is not perfect. The experts agree with Cliff; it is because we are using up the old pellets first.

Ambrosia (our significant 2020 investment)–the Freeze-dryer is running endlessly so far. She cranked out the first load of apples–they were Old Fashion Delicious (aka Spore). I am not a big fan of Delicious but getting them from a local person picked and box packed for an excellent price was worth the risk. She said she uses them for pie (IDK–I think I would have to add a lot of lemon juice), but they freeze-dried nicely. I sprinkled them with cinnamon and drizzled some with homemade caramel. We don’t think they need the caramel–the freeze-dryer makes them very sweet.

Freeze-dried apples are such an excellent snack that we may try to buy a few more boxes once we get caught up with the pumpkin and banana squash. I would love to do pears, too–not sure if we can still get them or not. There is local cold storage that might even have some available–we will check and see.

Cliff got the waterlines winterized, just in time. We didn’t get the garden cleared out as we wanted–I hope to do that before winter sets in proper.
