Morning Report

We all woke up to something different this morning here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada, with fog everywhere. It will be very humid today until the sun comes out, which it should do later on. Tomorrow we hopefully will see a bit of rain as things sure need it. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 16.8 C | 62.24 F. It will warm up as the day progresses. This morning I will hill up my tomatoes a wee bit and put some grass cuttings around them. Then give them a drink. They are a nice size, but still a long way to ripening. Reason being I didn’t get them planted till June 1st this year. Not much you can do about that. I do have a couple that is showing some colour. On the good side of this dry weather, the grass has slowed down a lot which makes me smile, as we don’t have to cut it as often. After I get my garden done I will get back to filling some small orders and then see if I can finish up the Flute I started yesterday. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and will see what the day has in store for me, other than what I want to do. Have a great day.

It should be a pretty good day for fishing. I give it a 4 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. The winds are coming in from the South East and should change more towards the South in a bit. Good Luck stay safe.

No sunshine this morning here in Port Loring. Ontario. Canada. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 19.6 C | 67.28 F. It looks like we are going to get some much-needed rain today and into tonight. I hope so our garden is in need. The trees around our place would also like a drink I suspect. Today I will be working away in the woodworking shop on some small orders then once finished I will get back to my Flutes. I have 25 on the go this time, which will make a nice show for next summer in our store. Our lettuce in our vegetable garden is slowly ending, so once it cools down a wee bit I will plant some more, which then should last till Fall. Zucchini is growing leaps and bounds these days along with the cucumbers, and we been enjoying them daily. Ruth cuts them up, and we use it with other vegetables for dippers in her home made dressings. Tastes pretty good. Tomatoes are just starting to turn a bit yellow as we planted mostly low acid ones this spring. It will be interesting to see how they turn out. Good size I will say that. Can’t wait till they are ready. Nothing like fresh tomato sandwiches. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee with my lovely wife, and will see what the day has in store. Have a great day.

Today should be great for catching a few if you get out there before it rains. Winds are coming in from the South West, which when conditions are good makes for some good fishing. Today I give it a 4 Star Rating out of 5 for catching a few. If, you do head on out, make sure you take a rain coat. I am thinking it might be needed. Stay safe and good luck!

Another sunny nice day here in Port Loring, Ontario, Canada. It is nice to have cooler temperatures for sleeping. I actually had to shut some windows through the night being a touch too cool. Not complaining mind ya. Temperatures waking up were sitting at 18.9 C | 66.02 F. It will warm up as the day moves forward but it will be a really nice day. The weekend is looking good too other than a slight chance of a shower on Saturday. Today I have some work to do on my back deck fixing a few boards along with a coat of sealer. Then I will get back to my Flute making. I am starting to make some progress finally. There are so many steps in making them, at first it seems like you are going nowhere. But, such is life. Black flies, mosquitoes in our area are tolerable now. Horse and deer flies are annoying in certain areas. All in all not so bad. With that I am off for my morning cup of coffee and then will see what the day has in store for me. I make plans for the day, but the results are another story. Have a great day.
