    Good Saturday morning all. Currently 8°C and overcast. We had some glorious rain yesterday, saving me lots and lots of work. Yay!
    Today we are off to the rink for an early skating session, then home for a few hours and then off to babysit grandson overnight.
    Another busy day today!

    I'm organizing my potting area in the barn. It was the front that was hardest hit with the June storm, but the construction company made it whole again (and actually better than before). Barn 2 crop.jpg Shelving is in place, pots are stacked, tools are ready to be hung, and the dirt floor is raked to get rid of all the bits and pieces that shouldn't be there. Probably tomorrow the tool hangers will be up and tools hung. It's been a long haul, but we ended up with "better than before!"

    Jane, I am always so amazed by the power of nature. Glad that you have things sorted.

    Good Monday morning all. Currently just 5°C and clear. I hope it doesn't drop any more ... I didn't cover my tomatoes!
    Off to start another work week. This one is a 4 day work week as I have Friday booked off.
    Have a great day all :)

    Good Tuesday morning all. Currently just 8°C and overcast. Rain is in the forecast for later today.
    It's really starting to feel like fall ... temperatures are cooler, and the humidity is gone. Leaves are beginning to fall too.
    Off to work, where we are trimming shrubs.
    Have a great day all :)

    Morning all. Another week of 95+ temps...followed by another week of 95+ temps. But on the good side, it looks like the 100+ temps may have moved on to make someone else's life miserable. No rain either, our water bills have been in the $100+ range for 2 months and that is just from watering round the house foundation trying to keep it from cracking more than it did last summer. I have wandered through the front and back gardens telling some of the plants good bye. The annuals pulled themselves up by the roots trying to run away from the heat but were fried before even reaching the garden path. Even the native plants have gone into hiding, a few sad,brown flower stems collapsing onto the ground and a few tired sad looking leaves trying their best to give me some hope but I can not keep them watered enough for their needs. With no rain, most of our area is on water restrictions ... water before 10 a.m. and only two days a week. I hate this summer even more than last summer but neither of them can compare to the summers of 1980 or 2011.

    Good Wednesday morning all. Currently 17°C and overcast.
    We had some rain yesterday, and may get a little more today. Temperatures are much cooler, which makes for good working weather.
    Have a great day all :)

    Is there anything better than trying to mentally prepare yourself to go outside to water the garden (I am not automated) and find it RAINING?!?

    I love the rain...

    Busy day dealing with garden produce today ... I've got relish on, tomatoes to bag up, garlic to clean, and tomatillos to figure out what to do with.
