Bill and Ruth Reeder enjoyed having daughter, Shirley and son in law, Louie Vandrell, come to stay over night on Friday. Bill celebrated his birthday on the 6th, but it was three times the charm for birthday dinners this year. Another celebration dinner was had on Saturday with Dave, Becca and Ethan Crosby coming from Cambridge to celebrate. Sunday, Dave and family came back out, and Dave barbequed .steaks for yet another celebration. Happy Birthday wishes are sent your way, Bill. May this be a very special year for you to enjoy. Wanna Belle Coriell was up and cooking all weekend to feed some hungry family members. Jody and Jess were up to pick some corn, Dean showed up and Darren, Jeanine and kids also came over. There was lots of visiting to go with the good food. All were glad they were able to get a special good bye in with Holly who left on Monday for basic training camp for The National Guard in Missouri. Good luck wishes are sent to her from the valley. Jill Doughton and friends, Ruth Warfield and Terry Lemmon made their birthday, trip to Clarkston this past week. After sightseeing on the trip there, the three took a wonderful jet boat trip down The Snake River enjoying the stops and scenery. 7he trip took them down as far as Pine Creek. With all of the pictures she took on the trip, Jill has been having fun making them into crossword puzzles online in her spare time. Tony and Wanda Morgensen enjoyed visits from Wanda's brothers on Sunday. Lynn Morris of Council, Ricky from Lewiston and Duane from Kamiah all came and spent the day. They had a great time visiting and spent much time discussing the many fires from up north, especially the one on Boulder Creek. Jim and Lavonne Conner made two trips towards Ontario this past week. The first ended with a trip over to Purdums Produce Stand where they purchased some corn and peppers. Arriving home and tasting the fresh vegetables, they realized they hadn't purchased nearly enough so made a quick trip back the next day. Mary and Jenny Rininger enjoyed a week of down time with each other -- one of the last before Jenny heads back to school. Lanae Veselka enjoyed having a visit from good friend and neighbor, Carolyn Brown, on Sunday afternoon. Doris Baker made a fun trip during the week past. First, she headed to Elko, where she met up with her daughter, Barbara Kightlinger. From there, the two traveled on to Milford, UT. Once there, Doris joined with about 380 others to celebrate a high school reunion. Both Bob and Doris had graduated from Milford High School, Doris in 1949. While in Milford, Doris and Barbara stayed with sister, Colleen Johnson, and her husband, Bill. They had a nice surprise when niece Brenda and her husband, Dennis, showed up from Fort Hood, TX for a small family reunion. After several days of visiting in Milford, the girls headed back to Elko. Doris spent the night there before returning-home to Indian Valley. She is very thankful for son, Mark who came and took care of her place while she was gone.

Garden Corner How long until frost? Traditionally our first frost here at the Circle Z Ranch is September 15th. I am ready for fall. rm getting tired of pulling purslane, spraying bindweed, watering and mowing the lawn, swatting mosquitoes and being sweaty all the time. Most of the year's plantings are done and harvested, except for potatoes, winter squash, tomatoes and peppers. Everything is getting that end-of-the-season scrappy, tired look. Since my usual fall-sown crops did not germinate I'm going to forgo any kind of winter garden. It doesn't hurt a garden = or a gardener - to take time off. In fact, I'm sure we'll both be better for it. I. shouldn't say that every garden plant is done, so much as that I am done with my part of them. I will probably continue to get a few beans and pickling cucumbers right up to the frost, but I am not canning any more of them, just feeding whatever I don't want to the chickens. Chickens are a.great guilt- free way to quit canning. It is getting near time for garlic planting, and though I don't intend to have a winter garden, I would like to put in some garlic this fall. For several years my garlic succumbed in storage to some form of fungal disease. From what I've read, the way to solve the problem is to refrain from planting garlic in that area for several years, then to be sure to use disease- free cloves. In other words, I shouldn't have been replanting cloves from Special business sereices aeailable nms eunQ liecerd...

Chickens: a guilt-flee way to quit canning By Myrna Weikal -- 355-5829 - the garlic just harvested. I purchased a fungicide which I hope will alleviate the problem, and Fin going to plant the garlic in an entirely new area, my new little herb garden. Wish me luck. This is a good tithe to dig and divide irises and perennials. Irises, which multiply exponentially when your back is turned, benefit greatly from division. If left in crowded conditions they will form layers that tend to rot. The leaves will get uglier and the blooms will be fewer. So dig them up, toss out anything shriveled, replant the good ones shallowly with a little breathing room between. Share the excess with a neighbor, although they are probably overwhelmed with irises, too. It's like trying to give away zucchini but, unfortunately, chickens will not eat iris corms. Japanese or Siberian irises grow in a round clump which can be divided using a sharp shovel. Just chop the clump into four quarters. Loosen up the new clumps before replanting. I hold them by the leaves and bang the dirt end on the ground a few times, pulling them apart just a bit. As with bearded irises, the bulbs are not bothered by spending a couple months out of the soil. You have some time "to think about where you want to put them. A few weeks ago I reported that the heat had taken all the leaves off my Virginia creeper. It wasn't heat. It was bugs. Some ghastly little leaf sucker has invaded my lovely vines. There isn't a single unaffected leaf on any of the plantings, and now the pest has moved to the sand cherry bushes. I sprayed and sprayed with insecticidal soap, but I think I was too late. It's another reason I'm looking forward to frost, hoping that cold will kill the VRS AUTO GLASS VALLEY REPAIRS & SERVICES .

I also want to clarify something I mentioned last week about tomatoes. I like to clip away the excess foliage so that I can see where the ripe tomatoes are hiding, but a person does have to be careful not to cut away so much that they subject ripe tomatoes to sunscald. So you might want to trim heavily on the north side of the plants, but leave the rest alone. Also, you can stop watering tomatoes and potatoes if you haven't already. This will encourage the tomatoes to ripen and the potatoes to set their skins. Speaking of skins, how do you tell when the winter squash is ready to harvest? If you can't push your fingernail through the skin, it's ready to pick. I wish there was as easy a method of knowing when watermelon is ripe. If there is, I don't know of it.
