Canoeing and Gardening

Yesterday at dusk I took my wife and son out in the canoe for the first time this year. We paddled along the edge of the pond and watched the smallmouth bass who are up the beds this time of year. We paddled into the lagoon at the end of the lake and spooked a snapping turtle, who slid into the water and slowly swam into the weeds to avoid us. Then we paddled down to the beach and my son ran and played in the cold water, but it didn’t bother him.

I’ve been busy in the garden getting fruits and perennials ready for the growing season. Yesterday I put some asparagus crowns into a raised bed and watered the new strawberry patch. The rhubarb is coming up nicely, and the areas around the garden are littered with the scat of the porcupines who have been eating the clover at night.  I’ll put the annual vegetables in soon.  For the time being, there are plenty of dandelion greens and chickweed to eat.
At the urging of my brother I changed all the text fonts on our website in order to make it easier on the eyes. Let me know if you like it better or worse.
