If we weren't watering nearly every day during this hot/dry summer, the plants would wilt and die so quickly. We don't can and freeze anymore, but we love eating fresh tomatoes, squash, green beans, cucumbers, okra, and potatoes. And we love sharing them with our friends and neighbors. We plan our trips to the beach and mountains in the spring and fall, as well as our trips to visit children and grandchildren.
