Local Farmers are reaping the benefits of the extra rain the Greater Toronto Area has received so far this spring and summer.

Kelly, a local farmer, said business increases during wet summers, but so has the work. Healthy grass and crops requires more maintenance, but also a much more profittable and sustainable farm.

While farmers spend extra money beautifying their crops and preserving them from excessive r when the grass stays green, he said, compared to years when crops spoil because of a burn-out.

The long, deep-freeze and stormy weather from the winter damaged a lot of roots and crops.  With this exceptionally...

I’ve operated a chain saw since I was about 12. Growing up around chainsaws, my dad and I occasionally needed to cut up trees that had fallen into fields, or trees that had grown over fences and property lines between our farm and the neighbors’.
 
We also cut wood to heat our home, so I had a good upbringing in using a saw — sort of.
 
I learned such things as how to mix the fuel properly, how to hold the saw level when cutting and how to predict and avoid pinches (those pressure points in the limb that clamp down on the saw, trapping it into place).
 
I also learned about kick-back — the sudden,...
 
There’s nothing like the approach of bad weather to get everyone in its expected path thinking about generators. But for some prospective buyers, the noise and the quality of power that a portable generator supplies is a turn-off. That’s where an inverter model comes in. Using new technology, inverter generators deliver cleaner power and are typically quieter, lighter, and more energy efficient. But as far as Consumer Reports is concerned Honda's EU7000i is the best of the best.

The Greater Toronto Area has been inundated with excessive rainfall yet again! Resulting in saturated soils and flooding in many areas. Many other areas also have been experiencing above average rainfall.
 
When it is too wet, it is difficult to keep up with regular garden and yard maintenance. The excessively wet soils also can damage some plants or even kill them. When gardens and yards are flooded, even more severe damage can occur, causing the death of lawns, flowers, shrubs or trees. Excess water forces oxygen out of the soil, which in effect causes the plants’ roots to die or drown from lack of oxygen.

Always make safety a priority when using outdoor power equipment.   
 
Research shows that more than 75,000 people are treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms each year for injuries caused by power lawn mowers. Many of these injuries were caused by carelessness. One important step to safety is to read the operator's manual that comes with the mower.
 
Power mowers are designed to cut dense grass when used properly and will mulch grass and chop up small sticks and weed stems.
 
 
Power mowers also will easily cut fingers, toes and shoes, however. Tens of thousands of people every year wind up in the...
