September 22, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: About a decade or more ago the borrow pit east of Tisdale on the north side of highway #3 was stocked with trout and during the summer dedicated fishing folk could be seen trying to catch one. But the fish were unsustainable and this spring the pond was pumped empty and this fall it is being modified.

Tim's Tip of the Day

There will be no signifance crop this year but this is Saskatchewan and some year's farming does not work out. But the provincial and Canadian economy appear to be strong enough to keep us all going through the coming winter. (Click on thumb nail to see full size.)

Find of the day

The secret bluder that sank Titanic

Things are wet
September 14, 2010
by: Timothy W. Shire

Tisdale: Wet spring, wet summer and now wet once again as we go into fall. Crops not planted, those crops that were put in the ground grew poorly and many ploughed under now what crops that have been swathed and are awaiting harvest are soaking in the field. When looking for a bright side rice comes to mind but it has been to cold for that to have grown maybe farmers should consider wild rice for next year.

September 3, 2010
