Life Away from the City on May 31/2024

Good morning! There’s nothing like a piece of the country to start the day.

It’s another sunny morning here in cottage country, 7:00 AM, and the sun is well above the tree line, which means summer is almost here.

Lately, my wife and I have been very busy doing things outdoors. Like mowing the grass, planting fruit trees, small shrubs, plants… along with our vegetable garden. We did however have to cover some things up with the frost we had for the past two nights. I kind of think, we have seen the last of it now as tonight the temperature will be hovering around the 50F/10C mark. At least, I hope it does. But in saying all that, things are really growing. Our zucchini, peppers, cucumbers, lettuce and beans are above ground showing off. Which is sure nice to see, as my wife and I are sure looking forward to some fresh, out of the garden, pesticide free salads and things.

Today I am going to see about planting some grape vines. I wanted to do it yesterday, but we had too many other things on our plate, and never got around to planting them. Today, we will see.

Highway 22 is getting a touch busier every day, but not as busy as it has been in other years. But it will probably pick up more once the kids are out of school.

Bug Report: Actually, other than the mosquitoes, things haven’t been all that bad. The black flies are slowly leaving us thanks to the dragon flies. And I am hoping the frost we had keeps the mosquitoes at bay. Again, we will see how that pans out in the coming days.

With that I am off for my breakfast that my lovely wife has ready for me and will then head on outdoors.

You all have a great day, and I will leave you with this bit of wisdom I learned over the years: “Hard work never hurt nobody, but it sure makes the porch feel nice at the end of the day.”
