Summer started here a few weeks ago. There was a small relapse last week but summer is back with a vengeance today. I went out to the bush to hike around a bit and found a garter snake, a wood-tick and a ladybird beetle. These things are not supposed to be active until about May at the earliest. Summer is weeks early. The high temperature was 18C, in March… We should be seeing snow melting but there was just a bit left of some drifts under spruce trees. Everywhere the buds are filling on the trees.
I guess the longer summer will be helpful. I have lots of planting to do and I have to finish setting up my workshop. I expect instead of the usual 110 growing days, we will have about 150, more than enough for my vegetables and a good start for new trees and lawn.
