Flew out to the ranch Monday and while it was a bit warm we were still able to venture out.

Disappointed in the condition of some of our roads. They were in great shape this past spring but ~12" of rain in May and June trashed them.

Another disappointment. The neighbors blind/feeder setup potentially puts rounds across the fence line.

That is a good/bad problem!

Glad you got all of that rain bet it made your place a lot more lush, ponds/tanks full, roads are the unfortunate side effect of those wonderful rains.
I bet there a lot of folks on here that wish they had your problem with that much rain in May & June!!

If your neighbor has a decent amount of land and decided to put their blind and feeder by your fence line anyways, that is very inconsiderate and wrong in my books!!

Cool pics up

I don’t know why I’ve never noticed this monument before in Jayton.

Those of you unfamiliar with the area will note the large salt flats in the area.

Very cool trip and pictures. up That's a shame about the blind facing y'all's fence line. People are strange.

That's a nice airport that close to the ranch. Many years ago, I got to hunt as a guest on the Bacon Ranch that is on 83 between Aspermont and Guthrie. I miss getting to hunt in that area, it is so much different than the Piney Woods of East Texas.
Nice airplane, love those screens on the panel.

Looks like some good country for hunting. Maybe a little to good for those rattlers. Water in the pasture a big plus compared to other places. Good trip!

We ran out to the ranch again for a few days to do chores.

Nice trip except for the mosquitoes. They were on every part of the ranch high and low. Sure made us work fast putting concrete caps on fence posts, checking water gaps and filling feeders.

On the up side the weather was nice, creeks were running and there were lots of spring flowers still out. We saw deer, turkey, quail and my niece saw some hogs.

Speaking of wildflowers I ran across these Ranch videos from May 2019.


Prickly Poppy






Quote
White Prickly Poppy, Argemone albiflora spp. texana, can be found from Northern Arkansas & Southern Missouri to Texas. In the southern & western parts of Texas a Rose Prickly Poppy can be found with blooms in shades of pink and lavender. Further south and down into Mexico the Mexican Prickly Poppy can be seen with its distinctive yellow blooms.

All varieties exude a yellow sap that has been used by Native Americans for many ailments. Records of its use date as far back as the Aztecs, when their priests would use the plant in their sacrifice rituals. The Comanche’s so revered the plant for its many uses that they made offerings to it during harvesting. The sap was used to remove warts, treat cold sores and other skin ailments. A concoction from the flower can be made to treat lung congestion from colds or flu.

The seeds can be used as a laxative or as an emetic to induce vomiting or make a mild sedative. A tea brewed from the entire plant can be used to treat bladder infections, prostrate pain or the throbbing pain of a migraine. A wash made from the tea can be used to treat sunburn or scraped skin. To produce both a euphoric and mild sedating effect the plant was smoked in important ceremonies. It should be noted however that as with many beneficial plants if not used properly they can be very toxic.


Nutritious seeds of White Prickly Poppy are an excellent source of food for quail and dove.
(photo by Native American Seed).

The seeds are the only nutritional part of the plant. They are an excellent source of food for quail and dove because not only do they have a high oil content, but this plant produces a large number of seeds each year which makes it a reliable and dependable food source.

Production of large quantities of seeds also makes it easier to establish in your native landscape. Large colonies can form in sandy or well drained sites.

White Prickly Poppy seeds contain as much oil as soy beans. During WWII the oil from White Prickly Poppy seeds was used as a fine lubricant. I don’t know if it was sold to the public but I might be doing a little bit more research to find out.
