GOOD morning, and what a lovely day it is. Low humidity, full sun but the temperature is only 79 degrees at 10:00 AM, high today of 83 with a low tonight of 60. Looks like till Saturday we will have the 90’s again, which for Labor Day the last hurrah of summer that will be ok. I hope to get that last wagon unplanted before it gets hot again. Not my favorite job so I have to really push myself to clean up the flats. We all have jobs like that, I know.
I hope to start canning this week. HOW about you? With having a garden, hope of produce so you can process it is such a great accomplishment.
I have been waiting for this small report about our winter from the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Here is what they wrote for our winter in our zone.
Heartland (Region 10)
The Big Chill continues in Iowa, Missouri, and the heartland of our country. However, this region won’t experience the above-normal snowfalls of its eastern and northern neighbors.
Will There Be Snow?
Precipitation and snowfall will be slightly above average. In fact, December will be 1 inch below average, with the snowiest period being late in the month. Also expect snow dumps in early to mid-January.
How Cold Will It Get?
Winter will be colder than normal. The coldest periods fall in early and late December, early and late January, and early February.
I don’t want to think about this cold winter weather, but it will come if we want it or not. Enjoy this great weather this week.
