Our grandma had the best garden with all sorts of goodies

It was so great staying with Grandmother when we were kids. She had this fantastic garden with strawberry patches, pumpkins, raspberries, corn stalks, and even grape vines. Our grandmother loved spending time out there in the sizzling season picking strawberries or harvesting other crops. The thing is, it was strenuous labor and it was hot most of the time out there. The best thing we could do was relax in the shade when we were trying to cool off. Our grandparents did have 2window A/C units, however they never used those during the daytime, usually only during dinner time. We weren’t sure why they did things like that because we wanted to be comfortable in the daytime. But, they thought of A/C as something that was more of a treat than a necessity. Our grandparents would only use the cooling systems when guests were over for dinner. That’s just the way it was. Other than that, if you wanted to be cool in the farm house, you’d either have a fan running or you would head over to the swimming pool in the neighborhood to cool off . We never minded too much to be honest. We always enjoyed going swimming at the pool and other events at the community hall. Our Grandmother would take us everywhere like the summer air balloon launches or the local parades. There was always something exciting to do in the neighborhood and she was all about having a nice time for a low cost. She even managed to get us food at local diners for close to 50% off because we would go to those arenas when they were closing and we enjoyed ideal temperature control settings.
