LOL you might wanna reconsider coming to my house tonight unless 34 degrees and windy as heck sounds good to you!
My hubby wants to take the boat out fishing amd even now in the warmest part of the day it's only like 55!! We go out on the lake I'll either throw up from the rough water or freeze to death....or maybe both :(

OK then, bring your whole crew to my house. I just built a new deck in the backyard and it's gonna be in the mid-60's and clear tonight in TX. We can come to your place in Aug when it's still in the 90's at midnight down here.

I'll call tedln to join us. He lives near here too. We can all talk about fishing over a few Shiner Bocks. Just don't laugh at my little garden.

Dixana, I see your from zone 4, what state? As I always have trouble with the wind here in South Dakota when its time to harden off the plants. For the last 5 days or so that I've checked its been everywhere from 18mph to 32 gusting to 40. Crazy, the temps are nice though 60's and 70's.

Anyway, what potatoes is everyone planting? I'm still waiting to get my out...

I have: Maris Piper, Belle De Fontenay, King Edward, Nicola, Epicure, Peanut
Why buy produce when you can grow it?

Wish me luck!!!
