Today is August 6, I picked Saskatoon berries this morning for 90 minutes. I went into town to get refills for my Thermacell. The mosquitoes are really bad this year. The people that don’t usually get bitten are getting eating alive. I’ve always had a problem with mosquitoes attacking me, so it’s nothing new.
I overheard a comment yesterday, which made me wonder. The comment was the mosquitoes are ruining summer. We live in mosquito country, we have to just deal with it unfortunately.
I use to live in British Columbia and the mosquito were quite different there. The mosquitoes don’t usually come out during the day. When dusk hits they come out, so I usually stayed inside at night.
While I was in town, my friend E sent me a text. She asked if I wanted lettuce. I told her I would stop by on my way home. I went to a garage sale and bought a few things. A really good garage sale. There was a lot of Christmas items but I held back and left.
While I was at E’s, she should me this Mosquito jacket she had bought in town. I said I’ve got to get one! So back to town I went and was able to get my jacket! They had my size to I can’t wait to see if it works.
I got home and got ready to work in the bush. I used the Thermacell and my jacket. The mosquitoes didn’t attack me! Yeah!
I took out 3 pallets, 2 tarps, 6 barbed wire rolls. The 2 tarps fit into 3 clear garbage bags.
After dinner I weeded my vegetable garden. There isn’t much there, I planted pretty late but I hopeful we will get some produce.
