He stole the idea from me!

I note that my friend, the Gabby Cabby, Peter Franklin, the New York City cab driver, has started a "new feature" on his website. It's a new weekly blog about food called "Mrs. Gabby's Kitchen". Funny, I always thought her last name would be and/or should be "Franklin" and not "Gabby"

Bound Like Grass

What a GREAT name for a book. As we continue reading Ruth McLaughlin's book during Montana History at the Marias Heritage Center, the title is starting to resonate more and more with me. Ruth grew up in Eastern Montana and in my opinion, both her parents and her grandparents, along with many of the homesteaders, had one tough miserable life

Winding up the harvest

Those custom cutters are pretty much done with this year's harvest from what I can ascertain. I heard about one crew that had gotten everything cleaned up and then got a call from a fellow who wanted another quarter section of canola harvested, so this means that they will have to re-clean all their equipment

According to the National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center, La Nina conditions have returned and are expected to slowly strengthen and continue throughout the winter months

Hey grandpa, what’s for dinner

This first of October weekend is a great weekend in which to work up a hunger in the Golden Triangle. Harvest fests abound with the Brady United Methodist Church holding their fall dinner tomorrow (Saturday) night from 5 to 7 at the Brady Community Hall. I wonder if the infamous Gary Gollohon will be there chowing down!

How you going to keep them down on the farm

My friend Gary Gollehon checked in with me today as I try to keep in contact with Gary, especially this time of year, to see what's going on with harvest. I understand that some of the custom cutters have moved north of the border into the Lethbridge area . They report that they tried the canola but it was too green at this time. They think/hope that tomorrow (Tuesday) that the spring wheat will be ready. Meanwhile down in Texas, it's still dry with no rain in sight. In fact, one of the guys says that it's hot enough that the ground temperature is so hot that it is impossible to take a drink of water from the tap, as they do not bury their lines very deep. Therefore, the ground temperature heats up the water in the pipes and gives them warm water in the cold water tap! I think we should send Mayor Bonderud down there to show them how to run a water department! There is also concern with the abandoned wheat acres that were never harvested since the ground is so hard that you can't get a danged plow into the ground, as they need to work the abandoned acres to bury the seed. Over in Oklahoma, the producers planted many acres of cotton which is considered to be a drought tolerant crop.
