Summer Arrives This Week

We’ve had a really strange spring. April had very little rain and not much heat. May, so far, has been cold and windy. Finally, summer heat is expected next week. I can finally spray the weeds.

This is all part of global warming despite the local chill. No kidding. We had -10C temperatures just the other night. This cold air has come from the Arctic displaced by warm air from elsewhere. The polar air which normally sits there keeping ice going just can’t sit still with Earth and the oceans this warm. At least the weather won’t be boring. This summer, expect many storms as warm and cold air mix over us. I hope we don’t get another killing frost after the buds on my trees open. I should plant the garden about the middle of next week, at least the hardy stuff like onions. All the pots cluttering my dining room will visit the great outdoors to get used to the climate. This will be a great relief to TLW who resents the loss of the dining room’s table.
