Outdoor with Leaves (and Fire)

the trailer making experiment-- the texts are random,  and we are not in Mexico. :) In the unique climate of Colorado with cool morning and eves but up to the 80's-warm during the day, my vegetable garden seems confused about the weather. Should they strive or give up? The tomatoes and eggplants seemed to stop growing. The thermometer changes in such a wide range.
