Star thistle be gone!

Mowing and soon to plow field where star thistle has taken over. We had pretty much locked it as a weed on our hill until the 2002 forest fire trucks reintroduced it.

The cool weather has been such a nice break. Time for more heat to ripen tomatoes!

Diary 7/10/16

There has been an unusual amount of rainfall the last three days. For the most part July is apt to be hot and dry. It will make for juicier berries and stave off forest fires for a little while. White peach is loaded. I am terrible at thinning, but that is what it needs.

Diary 7/8/16

I plan to get back to blogging and writing in general now that the family "union" as my grandson would say is over. I am a little down with the aftermath of seeing so many people I love for five days...The garden is flourishing and needs my help, so I spent the morning there healing my heart and proceeding with life.

Diary 6/14

I was trying to say...I don't really want this to become a zombie blog. It has just been difficult to jump thru the technical hoops lately. It keeps dropping me like an old cell phone. Not sure who even reads this anymore, but I like to do it as exercise and record for me, so I will try to post some more if it works out! Here is an old storm cloud picture from last month!

Struggling with posting...

Diary 4/23/16

Seems like the harder I try, the slower I go sometimes. Trying to reason with that and slow down, ha-ha! So, I have missed blogging some progress on the farm. I am in charge of the Shady Cove/ Trail Wildflower Show which is coming up on May 7th and 8th. We will be collecting the flowers next week.
I have started some tomatoes for the plant sale and a few neighbors and friends. Not the 3000 we used to do!
