Monday blackflies are heavy and hungry.

I'm back and no bites. Really cold Monday night and Tuesday. I'm now going to read some carbonista news to warm me up.

Hey Harold:

yah last night was cold- the heat ran in the house and...
so much for "global warming" we've used nearly 50 percent more natural gas to heat our home this year- compared to last year- this is because it's been cold for so long now...
and it's going to be cold tonight 6C or 43 F- so the heat will run - we've turned it down quite low, but, this is just ridiculous!

I mean, come on!

2018- we used 141m3
2019- 200m3

No garden planting this week end- soil is cold and wet.
Hubby roto-tilled (hopes of drying soil) back later in the day to do shovel work- wet and cold soil (heavy!)
Everything is covered with tarps in hopes of warming and drying the soil...
We need some sun and some warm. Consistent warm to heat the soil- I'd say unless it warms up quite a bit, we'll be looking at our latest garden start- EVER!

greenhouse! Anyway, we got some sort of plant muncher living in the backyard, rabbit or groundhog. Darn dog is useless!
