Wow has it ever been hot for the past week, but the last few days have been the worst. I hear tomorrow will be bad to. With the humidity it feels like it’s 40C. I don’t do well with humid weather, I don’t know how all my southern friends do it. lol
The weekend before last, I took a trip with a dear friend and our oldest dd. We headed down to Humber Nursery, it’s a few hours from here. But boy is it worth the trip! We try to get down there every few years or so. Dd picked out some flowers, but I was on the hunt for fruit bushes. I wasn’t quite sure what I would get yet, but I was leaning towards currants. As we worked our way down through the fruit area, I started to think they were out of them. Nope, they were right down at the end of the row! They had 3 different kinds, white, red and black. Well that choice was much to hard, so 1 of each came home with me.
We were also looking through the store and I found some nice looking diamond hoes. But with the price being over $60 I put them back, as I did I noticed the next one on the shelf had a BIG yellow sticker. Yes it was on sale! $7.99! I couldn’t belive it, WOW what a mark down. Yes it came home with me! I’ve tried it out and it’s the best hoe I’ve ever used. So easy to weed with, I really wish I had the one years ago. All the summers I was hugely pregnant it would have made weeding so much easier. It is basically a metal part with 4 blades forming a diamond shape. You push and pull it across the dirt and it slices the weeds off. I did find a similar one on Amazon with a photo.
That said, it’s been too hot to do any weeding! But last night we did start putting in the stakes for the tomatoes. They are growing very well and many have small tomatoes already! I hope to finish staking and tying them up this week. Maybe on Friday when the humidity goes down a bit.
What are you all up to?
