The garden-porch shot -lower half. Spring was really cool this year 50's all the way to the middle of June.Temps. have been in the 90's ever since. We planted a lot of edible stuff this year guessing that with the lock downs, ect., there will not be any state fairs where we live. We did plant a few giant vegetables because you never know what might happen.
