Portland, Walla Walla and Environs

August 23, 2012

Great week in Portland OR, Walla Walla WA and the surrounding areas thereto.  Portland OR shares much with the city it was named after, Portland ME: great foods of local origins, amazing beer, nice open spaces and many recreational activities outdoors.  But really, the food and beer … pretty awesome … though the edge must go to Portland ME in the food category as there are no finer fresh oysters and fresh donuts.  Excellent hike up and around Multnomah Falls, just outside Portland.  Got to see friends at their family’s farm in Walla Walla WA, went to a handful of wineries in the area and had a great day on a ranch near Dayton on the river and getting acquainted with beefalo.

Garden did well while we were gone.  I installed a privacy fence around the two front beds and have been (mostly) covering them at night to prevent critter theft and vandalism.  More later on all that.

      Thanks. A small fence and (mostly) covering the beds at night with row cover have all but eliminated stolen/vandalized veggies. We picked peaches earlier than they should have been picked to prevent them from all being stolen. Thankfully the apples are now too big and heavy for squirrels to carry in their mouths on the way down the tree. Lil’ bastards.
