Another cooler and potentially rainy day at the lake. Global warming advocates are going to face some trouble making an argument if this continues. At least the water level is a bit up to start the summer. Of course the lake historically only varies less than a foot.
After some unidentified creature ate the two geraniums from the keg planter, the struggle is on to guard the safety of the other plants. A massive marigold planting has some partial chance of success with some enemies of the crop. Several deer were noted as spying the tomatoes. One broken tomato branch could have been the result, --there were accusations--but it is also thought that it might have been that way.
Fishing seems constant on the lake. A boat or more has been out there any time you look. It is thought the crappies are spawning. The DNR guy visiting the other day thought the walleyes should be done now. Boats are just sitting too long for the catch to be nothing.
The vegetation is greening like mad. Trees slow to do anything this spring are suddenly sprouting and other heading to some green displays. Mower and tractor oiling is no doubt underway.
