Memories are wonderful if you do not have to deal with the past.

We are the sum of all the events in our life

This time of the year it seems that everything is either not done or half done and never enough hours in a day or days in a week to accomplish what is on our list to do.
Berry season will be several weeks late this year due to the cooler weather we had earlier. Our vegetables gardens look like they are equally behind schedule.
Cattle are still to be worked, calves weaned and hay to be cut. We fetilized 87 acres so we can make a good hay crop.
Perhaps in a few days I will have time to share more. Read More...

The summer ended with a period of extreme heat and no rain. NOT what makes anything go right on a farm and ranch. We spent all our time keeping things alive (plants and critters).
Our somewhat annual vacation was taken to California to Sonoma county north of San Francisco- wine vineyard country. Eva attended cooking classes for advanced jam making and together we attended the three day National Heirloom Farming meeting. It was a relaxed week away.
When we got home it was still hot and dry, but suddenly that was all over. 8 inches of rain on Friday changed everything. We went to the Avinger Wine Festival on Saturday and sold jams and Eva did several cooking demonstrations. Javier has been going to the Longview Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings. It has been VERY slow.
Now is time to move the mama cows that are ready to have babies closer to home so we can watch them.
Life is good and we keep on keeping on.
