This And That

Editor's Note: This column was submitted to us on Aug. 31. The making of another frosting used up the remainder of my fresh raspberries. The following recipe was finally tested and is definitely a keeper. I’m using it for graham cracker...

 

The Fair Comes To Valley View Home

A.J. ETHERINGTON THE COURIER The Valley County Fair made its way to Valley View Home last week to bring the festivities to residents who remain largely isolated from the outside world amid the...

 

Pool Campaign Closing In On $1,000,000 Raised

Budding entrepreneur Oakleigh Trott chose one of the hottest weeks of the summer to set up shop in front of her house. Selling $0.50 lemonade one cup at a time, she amassed quite the business "Ya, I'v...

 

Confession Time

First off, I'm offering a confession: my gardening skills are not up to par this year. I'm feeling rather disappointed in my efforts this year. I don't know if it is because it's 2020 (the whole Covid...

 

Raspberry Recipes

This week's column will be almost all recipes. I'm using up my remaining raspberries without just freezing them 'as is'. Save these winners for next summer. They'll be worth it, I promise! I'm in...

 

Gone From Berries To Beans

While I’m still harvesting a few raspberries, they are definitely at the tail end of their capacity to produce appreciable numbers for this summer. A few of the canes may flower again and attempt a second crop, but those berries will succumb to...

 

Raspberries, Raspberries, Raspberries

I'm still spending all the hours of every morning picking raspberries. They just keep on ripening and requiring picking. I'll go around the outer edges of the long rows one day, and then through the...

 

This And That

I could get used to only writing a column every other week. The Courier hasn't had room for my drivel a couple of times lately, so I've enjoyed those "free" Mondays. The problem is remembering which...

 

Nursery Rhyme Time

“Mary, Mary, quite contrary. How does your garden grow?” “Like an out-of-control jungle, that’s how!” (I’ve resisted working this little jingle into my column for years, and aren’t you sorry I finally succumbed?) In place of silver...

Feeling Behind

First off, let me apologize for taking a week off from writing about gardening. We had a family gathering to celebrate a 90th birthday. It took a week to properly fete the birthday girl. There wasn't...

 

Spring Bounty

Editor’s Note: This column was submitted to us on June 7. Due to space in the past few issues of the Courier, this column was held. I’m still enjoying fresh rhubarb and asparagus, but not together of course! I still haven’t made a rhubarb pie,...

 

Busy-ness, Seeds and Eats

Another busy week has been competed, with a lot accomplished. First off, almost all my houseplants have been moved outside. The hoya vine and the mother spiderplant don’t go out. I’m loathe to disturb them and possibly lose them. Don’t tell my...

Spring Brings Work

It's very easy to lose track of time now, isn't it? In farming, one day is much like another, so holidays tend to sneak up on us. I let this Memorial Day ambush me, especially since there wasn't a...

Seeding, Farming Cooking

We’re almost finished seeding the wheat crop. I hope that’s finished by the time we get our mailed copy of the Courier. We’ve been watching the forecast, and so we decided to work on Sunday (a rarity for us). That’s thrown me off schedule,...

Planting And Cooking

Some planting has been done up north, both in the garden and out in the wheat fields. Dennis finished pre-working the many, many acres that will be seeded (and fertilized) this summer. He's now...

Back To The Garden

We've finally had several nice days up here in the way-beyond middle-of-nowhereland. That has allowed lots of outside work to be completed. The garden space has been worked, despite a slight mishap...

 

Tidying Up

For years I have ignored Dennis' many farming magazines and newsletters. I have separated the pages of the newsprint ones to use the sheets to line the garbage cans and for washing windows. Newsprint...

 

Glasgow City-County Library Offering Online Services

Closing the Glasgow City-County Library was difficult, but important to keep people safe during this challenging time. Undoubtedly, it has had a huge impact on our patrons and community. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to evolve and change, the...

 

Sunshine, Spring Sprouts and Soup

While the calendar says it’s spring, there’s still the occasional snowflake swirling down, at least up north. I wish Mother Nature would update her calendar to match ours. The sky is blue and the sun is shining as I write this Monday morning,...

A Lack Of Alliteration Or Resting Brain Syndrome

My alliteration skills are lacking this week. I have not been able to come up with a catchy headline for my drivel this week. I think my brain wants to remain in pajamas this morning. I suspect there...

 

Snow, Seeds, Supper

I’m sad to report we’ve been getting more snow, off and on. It melts a little, a little gets added, then melts a little more. The melting is winning; I can see a bit of lawn next to the garden, as well as mud at the bottom, where my asparagus...
