Eight heritage varieties of early season tomatoes for the garden this summer, including: Green velvet; Harbinger; Black cherry; Sub-arctic maxi; Golden Queen; Acadian Cherry; Blond Kopfchen; and Manitoba tomatoes, all from Upper Canada Seeds.
Watching the seedlings grow can get a little tedious, if that's all you do. Been spending a bit of time reading up and planning the multi purpose shed i'm gonna build once the snow disappears for good. A place to shape a few boards and for Nance to do some potting. Picked up three old-school looking windows from the re-store for $3 and plan to side the building in cedar or pine shiplap boards from a local sawmill. We've also scored some reclaimed ceder shakes from my sisters basement wall, that will be used for the roof. All in all it's pretty deadly in my head, now to just put it into reality.
As for the surf report from April fools days: John and Winston managed some small clean ones. Mostly the result of too much North wind and not quite enough East. While, further south at Stoney Point, the Duluth/Twin City-ites got some nice ones throughout the day.
While props go to Ryan (last name unknown) who posted this on the
Superior Surf Club site as well.
Sick waves for sure. Looks like the stars might align for a Northeast on Sunday and even into Monday.
