|Successful day of fishing in Seward|
|A limit of Susitna River silvers|
So it's Labor Day already. The garden is full of weeds, tomatoes are starting to ripen, potatoes have died back, and the second crop of corn will be ready in a few days. My cucumbers have been a complete disaster and along with the onions you got to got to wonder where the green thumb went. The apples are looking good and putting some heft to them. The Summer Crisp Pears have vacated their home and lay scattered on the ground. Next to ripen is the Patton pears as they have developed into a very substantial sized fruit and taste great. Apples and raspberries are next and within 4 weeks we could have our first killing frost. The clock keeps ticking for sure. I have an invitation to go back to Canada this fall with my neighbor Pete and at first our schedules didn't match but it looks like it's pushed out a week, I am not sure I can refuse. This weekend is my annual pre-Labor motorcycle ride with my brother Steve as we travel the scenic roads of southwestern Wisconsin. Hopefully we can plan our eventual trip around Lake Superior, a trip we should have taken this week! It's suppose to cool off next week with lows back down in the 50's, a welcome relief from these 80 degree nights. It's always something.
