But what a better way this is! Neil Lininger stopped by to pick up a tree he purchased, and came complete with not only the tractor to haul it home, but the auger on the back to take care of the planting when he gets there. Luckily he only had about a 1/2 mile to travel home. Take care, Susan

Enough venting. On to gardening ..........and life in the rural desert. This week has been a typical Nevada spring week. We went from 95 on Sunday to 40 today. Right now I can hear the rain dripping off the roof, a welcome sound if there ever was one. Not only needed moisture, but it will sure help with keeping the dust down in all this wind.............oh yeah, enough about the wind. If you are like me, you probably have a few of your vegetables in the ground by now. Fortunate for all of us we won't be facing a frost this week. Just cool daytime temps and even cooler evenings. I spent the better part of today creating a new perennial bed. It measures about 10 by 5, and is just perfect for easy access for planting and tending to the flowers. I am excited about some of the new perennials that we are seeing coming out of Canada this year, and had to have a new place to put them. I will post a picture when the project is complete. Off to play in the garden. Till next time, Happy Gardening, Susan

This is our annual fundraiser for the Relay for Life event here in Fallon. We like to think of it as the "Kick Off" Event for the upcoming walk. Various teams will be on hand to sell luminary bags to honor loved ones, and of course Ron & Bob will be back with their fabulous BBQ with all the trimmings. This year we are continuing last years hit event, the Wine Tasting Gazebo. For the small fee of $5.00, you can taste the 6 wines that we will be selling by the glass in the bar area. (100% of this goes to Relay for Life) Tickets for the concert will go on sale Saturday, May 17th, and continue until we sell out. Hope to see you there! Susan

Bill Mewaldt, our resident sommelier was on hand for a great wine tasting event.
Bob was back with his fabulous "Beer Brauts", that seemed to be a hit with everyone. (He still managed to cook a vegi burger for me though) Kevin and Michelle dropped by to see if he needed any "tasting assistance".
My best friend Kathy on the left, having just returned the day before from a 3 week adventure to Machu Picu, looking rested and wonderful. Lucia on the right, decked out in her new hat, all pretty in pink.
