Monday Making

I'm still working away at preserving the garden produce.
It takes a BIT of time making sure the GREAT vegetables
my husband's garden provides 
make it into onto our plates
and into our tummies.

He had a few VOLUNTEER cucumber plants this year.
That means = LOTS of cucumbers!!!!
This is the VERY first year I've attemped pickles.
That seemed to be the only way to get a handle on the situation!!!
I don't know what took me so long!!!
They are SO easy!!
I used this recipe for these dill pickles and LOVE them!

I will be making pickles EVERY year.

what are YOU up to this week???


  1. Oh, homemade pickles are so good! Years ago I tried making pickles and didn't have any success; even the flies wouldn't eat them when I finally put them on the compost pile. Then we moved and I tried them again and success. Not sure why the difference. Now this year we don't have any picklers.

  2. They look good. Congrats on taming the cucumbers, that's no small feat.

  3. Congrats on making pickles. I'm going to have to try this one day.

  4. Yummm. I've made pickles for years as well as salsa, spaghetti sauce, tomato juice, ketchup, jams, etc. I LOVE gardening and processing the produce as much as I love quilting!

  5. i make green tomato pickles....delish on burgers or even stand alone...

  6. Aren't volunteer plants the best surprise? Except for those volunteer weeds! :)

  7. mmm there is nothing like homemade pickles. I salivate just thinking about them.

  8. Great looking pickles! That garden is keeping you busy!
