Which taste better, pork chops or goat chops?

Goat can be fairly tough, but it's flavor holds up well.  We will make it into things like enchilladas, tamales, nachos, stews, etc.  I will keep one of the legs to grill, as long as it's carved properly it's pretty good..

Chops are definitely the preference.  We made our own bacon last year from a pig and that was tough to beat.

Fun week ahead, more harvest, more breakdowns, and the county fair to get ready for the county fair.  Oldest daughter had 2 pigs and one goat to show along with some sewing entries.

I think it's a shame it took this long and had to go through a legal process but in the end the right call was made.  Yianni got hosed in match 2.  I feel bad for Zain because I think that day I might have given him a good chance at winning match 3, but history has shown that Yianni is usually the better wrestler than Zain.

Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood morning everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wife has no comfort zone. If she says she's hot, we turn the air on until she's cold. Then shut it off until hot again. No middle.

Have a terrific day word!
Common trait amongst wives.  Mine like to do that especially in the car, and the heat/ac has to be on full force as well.

No AC in the wheat truck.  It gets pretty miserable some days.  Luckily we've had a very cool summer so far.  Makes for more tolerable days in the field but it also makes the harvest go a lot longer.  The wheat like the heat, it thrashes better in the combine when it's hot and dry.

Been broke down all week long, finally got everything fixed yesterday in time for a pretty intense lightening storm.  Luckily there was some moisture with it in our area (the neighboring counties had flash floods).  Hopefully we can get back to work and stay working for the next week and a half.

The beer promise must be in person.  There will be no shipping of beer through the mail.

Clackamas is the closest college to where I live.  I take our new club guys to a dual there every year.

A week and a half into harvest already have 140 hours clocked.  Two more weeks to go.

If I may ask, what is being harvested word?


Soft white winter wheat.  I live in Central Oregon, there is almost no corn grown in the Pacific Northwest.  Most of the grain produced here is soft white wheat that gets shipped to Asia for noodles, crackers, cookies, and cakes.

How do you know the weather is screwed up in Oregon ?  when the farmers reap their winter wheat in the middle of summer.

Winter wheat was the last on my crop list.  I always thought that was spring harvest, but i guess the weather in the north delays the harvest until summer..  You learn something new everyday.

It's called winter wheat because it's planted in the fall so it will grow over the winter.  It is usually cut before the spring wheat (which is planted in the spring), but they are both harvested within a couple of weeks of each other in the summer.

Which one goes with which town?
As a heads up, here in the Last Word thread, a back to back post, or double post as we call it, is forbidden.  Sorry we haven't been more clear.

Is this still a rule? Does anyone care?

The only other last word thread I have ever seen was completely different than what is going on here.  On the jet ski forum I used to frequent  it was a word association thread.  Someone would post a word, then the next poster would post the first word that came to mind having to do with the previous posters word.

Last week I did harvest some field peas that will be used for livestock feed, as well as some canola (for oil).  There is some barley grown in the area as well.  That is also used for livestock feed.

Most of the corn that is grown here is sweet corn for eating on the cob or canning.
