Things grow rapidly in the summer in southern Ontario. The weather is generally warm and there is usually more moisture than those of us from the West are used to in July and August. Those are some reasons why Ontario has always been, and still is, Canada’s top province in terms of total value of agricultural production.
This seems to have been a particularly good summer for growth. The rains have been regular most of the time (with the exception of a recent 3 week period which contributed to the incident described in Fire!) and the weather has been fairly warm for the most part. I was mowing in the orchard this morning and amazed at the gain in height of the fruit and nut trees over the past while.
