Green Tomatoes and Groundhogs

In our lives we choose what to struggle with and what to let go of.

A groundhog has shown up here, burrowed under the deck and is happily munching on the phlox and green tomatoes.

We’ve sprinkled some powder repellent around to deter him, but I think we’ll be picking the tomatoes ahead of ripeness and use the green (ain’t nothin’ like fried green tomatoes!) to fry and see if they’ll ripen inside.
