    Cool My outdoor growing space

    This is how I expect to outside grow this summer.

    My little 20' x 20' outdoor area, includes my deck space.

    My veggies are growing below the deck, below where the hanging orchids are. My spring spinach crop. Also some Columbine clumps (hybrids) visible. It is our State Flower. Not yet in bloom. This is the 2nd year for these Columbines in this location.

    Currently, I move the orchids outside and back inside daily. We are still way too cold for overnights outside.

    That is part of my worry.
    I move outside and the inside looks less full.
    So I will need to fill it up.
    But then fall comes and, Ack!
    No space!

    I can also get rid of those flower boxes. That will make it more uniform.

    I need to get trees for my yard. That way I can expand my orchid addiction. Already knocked off all but three from my wishlist and no space for them......where does the space go? HEE,HEE.

    I meant expand my orchid area but honestly (and obviously) can't edit that as a typo so I will just leave it there and tell on myself, lol.

    Looks like one of those Freudian slips to me!
