I recently returned from a trip to Pennsylvania with my cousin Tana. It was such a relaxing trip. My parents live in the countryside and their house doesn't get at&t service and the their wi-fi is slow (sorry mom, but truth). I pretty much put down my phone when I arrive and am running around outside most of the time I'm there. A cold front came through at the beginning of the trip and one night we had a low of 52 degrees! We got to catch up with a bunch of family and spend time in my grandma's gardens.

An accidental overgrowth of garlic happened this year in the garden (we picked several 5 gallon bucket's worth), so we decided to pickle a lot of it alongside the cucumbers.
