Bob and Mary Ann Hines persevere through a difficult growing season.

"Greetings from Bob and MaryAnn Hines' garden in Elizabethtown, Kentucky!  The 2016 growing season here in Kentucky has been much more hot, wet, and windy than other years, but the garden has seemed to respond well to these conditions.  Our garden is seven years old and located in a city neighborhood in the Zone 6 growing area."
