September Farmer Notes

September Farmer Notes

Ahhhhh….autumn at long last!  And as mellow of a September as this, I can not recall. Which is a strong statement given that September is presumed by many as the mellowest month on our calendar.  I can’t get enough of the slow  evenings. Evening begins much earlier now and almost suddenly however, evening in of… Continued

August Farmer Notes

Wow!  The request I wrote at the end of my last notes was for those displaced by our July fires to be back in their homes with no lives lost. This hope for our valley here was one hundred percent granted!  Mother Nature just never ceases to amaze. We couldn’t have had a more drastic… Continued

July Farmer Notes

The smoke has even the birds off-kilter in my estimation.  Truth to tell,  I’ve heard evening songs in the middle of these shrouded days.  As was somewhat feared, if not expected, our little valley is on fire again.  The heavy heat came early, back in late June, and has run head-long into the hot month… Continued

February Farmer Notes

February Farmer Notes

Winter remains alive and well here in Cascade foothills with some of the coldest temperatures of the season and more white fluff continuing to fall from the sky. It’s beautiful looking out, and beautiful once out albeit a bit chilly! Chickadees rush the feeder, along with Purple Finch, and in place of Waxwings, we’ve had… Continued

January Farmer Notes

January Farmer Notes

  Juncos and chickadees usher in the new year, chatting away as they visit the feeder, then hop atop the snowbanks, or zip over to the elderberry bush where a shrike lurks nearby hoping to catch one off guard so he/she can peg it to a rosehip thorn, or barbed wire fence. Administrations change, viruses… Continued
