I have to tell ya, we sure have been having some nice weather for the past week or so. Other than the BlackFlies, that is. But it is to be expected living where we do. And they ease off around the middle of June. They are pretty bad out there at the moment. I worked in my gardens yesterday and the air was thick. But they didn’t bother me, biting wise. I chock it up to being so old, I am not as tasty as I used to be. They would much sooner enjoy the juicy city folks. Ha Ha
Highway 522 is getting busier every day, which is normal for this time of year. The temperatures have sure been warm the past couple days, which should kill some of these blackflies.
On another note, our grass is sure growing leaps and bounds these days. We will have to mow it next week for sure. We still have to plant our vegetable gardens, but I am holding off till after the full moon on the 16th of this month. After that, I will see how things are looking. It would be nice to get things planted, that’s for sure. Doesn’t pay to rush things when it comes to Mother Nature. Last year I planted them early, and we had a bad freeze, and we lost a lot. And the thing is being an old farmer I know better. Ha Ha.
With that I am off for a boiled egg and a piece of toast and will then get to work. I am getting our two front decks ready to paint. They get looking not so good after winter. Take care and have a great day. Make it a great day. GW
