Morning Chat May 30/2021

Good Morning!. It’s another cold morning here in Port Loring, Ontario. The temperature getting out of bed was sitting at 5.2 C | 41.36 F. We have had some heavy frost for the past two mornings which I suspect took its toll on a lot of gardens. I lost a few plants myself. I had them covered, but being so cold it didn’t help. Not much a person can do other than replant. Usually things work out, but occasionally a year comes along that surprises a person. Such is life. Highway 522 is still quite busy these days with folks coming in from all over. Knowing that, extra care is needed to keep one safe with this virus. Even though a person has had his or her shot doesn’t mean that they are invincible. I suspect we will be living with this virus for a few years to come. On another note, my lovely wife and I have been getting a lot of work done on our new building out back. It is finally starting to look like something. Today we will finish up the trim work and then get to installing the shingles on the roof. It has been cool working out there, but the good part is the black flies and mosquitoes don’t like the cold all that much. Which makes things a lot nicer for working. With that I am off for my morning bowl of cereal and will then see what the day has in store. Other than what I have planned. You just never know, and I like it that way … as it makes life interesting. LOL Take care and stay safe. GW

  1. Thank you for getting back. I have your book join me in the garden, it’s the best. I trimmed my apple trees, cherry and pear trees for the first time. The book helps me out a lot. Nancy

  2. Hello Mr. Walter can you mix ashes and water and put it over rhubarb leaves. My sister has a bug in hers and eating her leaves. Thank you. I have a bug in my potatoes, I kill them when I see them, but thinking of putting the mixture on my potatoes leaves also. Thank you again.

    1. Yep, you can put the ash water over the leaves on the rhubarb. What I do is I take the garden hose and wet down the leaves and then sprinkle ashes over the top of them. Thanks for saying hello. GW
