    Flood watch, junipers come down, Bee Field ready to plant

    Photo-upload-425885?1426868391 We are under a flash flood watch with a possible 7 inches of slow-moving rain. Sometimes it rains upstream and not here, but the river can still rise and cut us off. Fortunately we are well stocked with feed and groceries. And if it rains on the mountain behind us, our own creek can rise and cut ...

    2015 Harvest Tally Journal

    Photo-upload-425652?1426691462 This is a place for me to keep track of what I harvested and how much it would be worth if I had to buy it in a grocery store. The year-end total will be compared with the total money I spent during 2015 on gardening. The plan is to see if I break even or not, and if not, how expensive my hobby...

    Oregon Spring Tomatoes are setting fruit

    Photo-upload-426228?1427089544 It's been a long time a coming, but we finally have tiny little tomatoes on several of the Oregon Spring tomato plants. We could credit the Epson salts, but I think the tomatoes were there before we sprayed them.

    Pond Maintenance and a New Filter

    Photo-upload-425757?1426745436 After the success of the solar powered fountain with battery backup I started looking for further solar powered pumps with batteries.
