Valley News by Isla Graven Tom Dennis, who now lives in Baker City, came to the valley last Thursday ai ernoon to help put out flags honoring deceased veter- ans at Eagle Valley Cemetery. Tom has been doing this for years and we really appreciate his help. Others help- ing were Walt Saunders, Jr., Scout leader Walt Forsea and Boy Scouts Eric Farstad, Shean Lattin and Nick Heeren, and Yours Truly. If anyone knows of a veteran's site we missed, please let me know and we will bring the list up to date. Waffle Feed A Success The Waffle Feed held Friday evening to raise money to pay for the "Welcome to Eagle Valley" sign was a great success.

A special thanks to the following people who helped with cooking, serving, cleaning, doing dishes, etc.: Elma and Sid Ziegler, Marge and Eldon Deardorff, John Chandler, Sr., John Weir, Dorothy Randall, Wilma Sadlowsky and Jan Mills.

We're sorry for any confusion or in- convenience this may have caused the VFW and Auxil- iary, and those who attend these services. A Great Spinach Year! Once every 7- 9 years, spin- ach down at Pine Creek actu- ally makes those dark green, succulent leaves so prized for fresh spinach salad (1/4 cup each of bacon grease, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, lemon juice and Worchestershire sauce heated and poured over spinach leaves and crisp ba- con bits). Other years, a typi- cal spinach crop is 3 true leaves per 4" plant before it goes to seed. So while the radishes are soggy and the bean, cucumber and beet seeds have rotted in the ground, lettuce and spinach are thriving, if mud splat- tered. So are the cabbage, broccoli and squash plants if they survive an inability to resist giving them "just a little more" chicken fertilizer wa- ter. Peppers are very melan- choly and would just as soon be in Farmington. This year I neglected to plant any Bok Choy, a grievous error, as it would have loved all this sog. Nellie and I gathered a bucket and two sacks of pine needles up East Pine on Saturday's mushroom trip. I dug three holes in the garden and planted them as the fu- ture home for blueberry plants. Evidently I'm too late this year to find plants but I'll be ready next year. This gar- dening obsession just contin- ues to fascinate; refreshed each year by a gaze at Bill Farson's blueberry plants.
