Fly Away

Filed under: Uncategorized — rnwinje @ 7:25 pm

Though flights may be slow to leave places in Europe, they are not slow to land at Winje’s Farm.
The Sand Hill numbers seem to be larger this season than in the past. Suppose they know the easement is in place?

Our flight to Sedona AZ is scheduled to leave Reno this Thursday. We will be back to the office after the first of the month.
I will post fresh information then.

landscape changes

The landscape in front of Winje’s Farm is forever changed.
Today, in order to remove obstacles and to prepare for the upcoming fence work, I decided to push over and burn an old garage I had once thought of moving.  When I saw the building would break when moved, I pushed it over with the tractor and put a match to it.   Now we have a view of the lake at the edge of our wetland from our house.

lots of sandhill

Filed under: Uncategorized — rnwinje @ 6:34 am

Lots of action this week on the farm. A real plan is developing for the new fence, with a date in May to get started. In addition, a large group of sandhill crane have spent days walking the WRP, dancing and eating.
Yesterday we counted over 27 individuals. Our cottage quest will have an extra treat while walking the creek to the meadow.

Chicken or the egg

Not every day is a work day on the farm. Not every egg becomes a bird. Hope your Easter was as wonderful as ours.

The process has hit the ground

Filed under: Uncategorized — rnwinje @ 7:31 am

A list of improvements to our wetland has begun. First to take place will be a new wildlife friendly boundary fence. The new 4 wire fence will have a smooth bottom wire and a maximum 42″ high 4 barb top wire. To follow later this summer will be improvements to the irrigation system and main stream.
