Hi Kathleen, In my part of the country on the opposite coast from where you are the weather is warm here and my pumpkin are still growing with a slight tinge of yellow on one pumpkin that I hope will yield some nice pies for me this fall and winter. I am eating my bush beans for dinner all the time which have yielded a bountiful crop for me to enjoy. We had a lot of rain and cold weather here earlier this spring so we are enjoying the good weather at this time with the sun out and the skies all clear in Slocan, British Columbia where we just celebrated our 110th anniversary of becoming a village yesterday.
We've had a cool down here - 60s (F) for highs and headed for some rain leftover from tropical storm Lee. It has either been in the 90s (F) and dry for weeks or chilly and rainy this summer. My pumpkin seed never germinated, but we had yellow and green beans and the zucchini is just getting started along with the tomatoes.
Congratulations on your village's birthday. We're in an area of NY that was settled later than most of the state, the towns are all in the area of 150 years old. The farm that we're on is over 100, though not in our family, we are the first generation of 'us'. It has given us some very old flowering plants, roses and herbs. It's been an adventure figuring out what some of them are.
