Farmers have been enjoying a few weeks of unseasonably warm weather, which has greatly assisted with wrapping up most of the harvest and baling of feed. The trees are turning color; many wild trees are still green though which makes them about a month behind most years. However, the weather did cool down on the weekend and is going to be much cooler this week by the sounds of it. As of yet, there hasn’t been a killing frost.
We send get well wishes to Fred Gardner, who is in the Foothills Hospital in Calgary. We hope you have a speedy recovery, Fred.
