Farmers waiting for harvest weather

The fall harvest has been delayed by the rain and snow that fell last week.

Byemoor/Endiang News

The fall harvest has been delayed by the rain and snow that fell last week. With that storm, the district received its first killing frost of the season. Some of the standing crops were flattened by the snow and fields are a little on the soggy side now. This will certainly slow down harvest operations and make it more difficult.

Rod and Krissy Jack and their girls Jesse, Sydney and Emma spent last week at Spruce Meadows with their mobile speciality coffee business, Jacked Up Coffee. It was a busy time for them.

Keep in mind the Terry Fox Run at the Byemoor School on Friday. The students would appreciate your pledges.

Remember the Byemoor Hotel hosts its Sunday brunch at the hotel on the last Sunday of the month.

Classes have also resumed at the Byemoor Colony school with Elaine Hoekstra being the teacher while Jenelle Hassett is on maternity leave. Theresa Christie is the teacher’s aide.

Scott Johnson and his daughters Natalie and Holly from Medicine Hat were weekend visitors with Doug and Deanna Johnson.

Brian and Theresa Christie’s home was busy on the weekend with visitors. Carly Christie, her cousin and Brian’s sister and brother-in-law from Medicine Hat along with Jordana and Jesse Bosma from Stettler all participated in a sausage making bee at the Christie’s.

It was a bit of a slow news week in the Endiang-Byemoor community, mostly as farmers wait for better weather to resume harvest.
