July was a busy month. I traveled to Seattle, Portland, Boston, Hartford, New York City, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland. That didn't leave me much time in the kitchen. My Boston trip was one of the highlights because I visited my parents, brother, niece, and my Aunt Franny and Uncle Sonny. Here's a quick tour of Uncle Sonny's AWESOME garden. Wait, have you not met my Uncle Sonny? Please shake hands with him here or here.
Uncle Sonny's garden is amazing. With only a little space, he is growing eggplant, squash, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, basil, and a bunch of other veggies.
Here are the tomato plants. Looks like it might be a bumper crop this year.
Amazing garden, right? Everything was going well with the garden until this happened (see photo above). A groundhog was getting into my Aunt Franny's green beans. She loves beans, they are her favorite.
After trying a bunch of other strategies to catch the groundhog, Uncle Sonny's friend brought over this trap. A few days later they caught him, then signed him up for a relocation plan by driving him across town and letting him out in the woods. NO more beans for you!
