Is it still cool enough for chard and beets in the DC area? I remember my years
there that the summers were hot and sticky, just like here in Louisiana and in
Southern MD where Miz Anne is from. She's going up there to visit her 92-year
old momma at the end of July. Taking our daughter and eldest granddaughter with
her. I think they're planning to drive in and take the Metro into the museum
area one day.

If you get tired of weeding your garden come on down, the weeds are well-watered
and rampant.
