What’s Happening In Cottage Country On August 20/2023

Good Morning!

It looks like we are in for another fine day here in Cottage Country. The sky has a bit of cloud cover, but you know what they say – every cloud’s got a silver lining, and I reckon that sun’s just sleeping in a wee bit before it decides to rise and shine proper. The nice thing is it has been real nice for sleeping with it being a bit cool.

Highway 522: it has picked up some the past few days with folks from all over driving through. A lot has stopped by our gift shop too, which is nice to see, picking up one of a kind items that you can’t buy anywhere else. Speaking of our gift shop and unique items, I am in the process of making a few more flutes. It is a long process in making them, but I do enjoy working with wood. And it’s nice to be able to do these things. Sometimes, though, it seems the wood is working with me.

On another note, I did manage to clean up my vegetable garden yesterday with the help of my lovely wife. It took us most of the day as I had to remove the suckers on our tomatoes. They die this time of year. You know this is a trend with tomatoes. The thing is when seeing this … a lot of people think that their plants have a disease when really they don’t. The next thing is that bothers me a lot, is that certain folks then tell them they have a blight and things like that, and they have to treat the soil or spray chemicals on the plants to correct the problem. The truth is, this is a natural occurrence this time of year with the plant itself killing off the suckers, so it can feed the tomatoes along with making room for the sun to move in for them to ripen. Nature sure is amazing if you take the time to listen and watch, what she is telling/showing you.

With that I am off for some waffles this morning that my little woman is making for me and will then see what the day has in store other than what I have planned. I never really know for sure.

Have a great day, make it a great day. You’re the only one that can do that. GW
