No doubt we have had an extreme summer this year in Ontario. Extremely high temperatures and accompanying drought conditions were followed by an extreme amount of rainfall over a very short time period, then topped off with an over abundance of annoying, hungry mosquitoes.
We should be moving up this list as our daytime temperatures are still soaring high. The good news is our evening/night temperatures are currently cooler, much better for sleeping. Most people will agree, moderate is much more tolerable than extreme.
Despite the extreme weather we have experienced, after last summer’s lack of sunshine and heat, no one can complain we did not get enough of either this summer. I must admit thought, this extreme summer has limited my time in my gardens!
