perrenial ryegrass vs medusa head rye

My husband and I bought 66 acres of dry-land pasture near John Day. It contains mostly crested wheatgrass, ryegrass, alfalfa and cheat-grass. However, our neighbors' land is about 90% medusa head and it is spreading onto our place. We now have several acres of Medusa Head on the north, south and west sides of our fence-line. I have heard that certain ryegrass species are effective in competing with Medusa Head. Is this true? If so, which species is best for competing with Medusa Head in Eastern Oregon? Thank you.

How to develop an above ground cistern for household water supply

We have a cabin just outside of Granite, OR and had developed a spring for household water use. The spring went dry two years ago due to the drought and did come back this year but we no longer trust it for year around use. We would like to have a portable cistern system so we can fill the tank off-site, as needed, and then have it pressurized for use in the bathroom and kitchen. We have a small solar system so would prefer to have a pump that is solar powered. Can you recommend articles or advice to take us from start to finish on this project. And where to get the needed items. Thanks, Colleen

How Garden Table Grapes for Eastern Oregon (John Day)

I would like to grow a couple varieties of table grapes at home and was hoping you could recommend a few types that would be well suited (and easy growing)for John Day. I would prefer seedless varieties if possible. Also, where would you recommend purchasing them? I noticed several mail order companies are restricted to sending grapes to Oregon. I plan to grow these in containers. Do you recommend a specific year to purchase (1 yr, 2 yr, 3 yr, if available?)? I have been informed that the time to plant grapes is in the fall. Would it be awful to go ahead with a spring planting or should I just wait another 6 months...? Thanks so much! You guys are a wonderful resource!!!!
