Morning Chat June 7/2021

Good Morning!. It’s another sunny day here in Port Loring, Ontario. The temperature waking up … was sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. It will warm up substantially as the day moves forward. So once again, it would be a good idea of getting things done this morning before it gets too hot. Highway 522 is busy these days with lots of campers and different vehicles moving into our area for the summer. So care should be taken if out and about. On another note, the blackflies and mosquitoes are among us once again. The cold spell there for a few days slowed them down some for a bit. But with the dragon flies and birds, they are making short work of them. Which is okay by me and my little woman. Eat hearty, I say. My vegetable gardens are looking like a garden once again, now that we replanted a lot of things after the freezing temperatures we had awhile ago. I also noticed it is very hard to buy seeds this year, especially corn. I did find a package I had lying around, but it only had five Kernels in it. So we won’t be having much corn this fall. Other seeds like lettuce and things I have lots of, so we will be okay in that department. With this hot dry weather, watering will be essential for a while. At least till they get up there in size. I have put down a lot of grass cuttings around the plants, which should hold the moisture and nourish them as the days move by. Nothing like rotten grass cuttings to help them along and give things the flavour that is missing these days. On another note, I did manage to get a lot of work done outside yesterday. We did bury the water lines to the new shower house out back, and today I will start hooking up the shower. It kind of looks like it might be a challenge all coming in a box disassembled. Hmm, might pay to read the instructions first. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and a bite to eat … and will then get to work. Take care and stay safe. GW
