The weather has continued to be cool this week. Most days’ the temperature stays in the 50’s and occasionally it does go into the 60’s. The sky has remained cloudy for the most part, with sunshine for brief periods of time. This is more typical of the summers we usually experience…cool and damp with nighttime temperatures in the low 40’s and sometimes in the upper 30’s.
My garden continues to look very sad. Hopefully, it won’t be too long until the plants begin to look a bit spiffier. It is, after all, still June and there are almost two and a half months left of summer. At least all my plants are cool weather types.
The rhubarb patch was trampled a couple days ago. It looks as though a moose calf or two were busy exploring. Several stalks were partially eaten and then spit out and half of the patch looked as though it was lain upon.
The fire around Nenana is now 40% contained at 70,000 acres. So much for my husband’s planned moose hunting trip this fall. It burned exactly in the area he planned to hunt, burned three homes, a couple cabins and several outhouses. It has rained a bit now so the fire’s progression has halted and gives the firefighting crews time to make a buffer. There have been over 500 firefighters working the fire.
Last night’s dinner was so good. I fixed a sweet sour shrimp dinner that was served over jasmine rice, and broccoli. I made a few substitutions to make it BTD friendly. We continue to enjoy the fresh vegetable juices almost every day, too.
The summer solstice is almost here. Possible sunlight is over 19 hours now, but with the dawn/dusk figured in, we have daylight for 21 hours 45 minutes and then it gets just a hint of dark. All through the night, you can walk around outside and not need any additional lighting source. I really love the summer light, but almost miss not seeing any stars or the northern lights.
Till next time…
