So, today the kids and I picked a bunch of cukes and made 9 pints of pickles! I hope they turn out decent. The kids love pickles and were thrilled that we got to make our own. We will probably open up one tomorrow evening and let them try them (even though we JUST opened a jar of pickles a day or two ago) and if they did turn out I will probably make another bunch in a week or so.

My tomatoes have finally decided to ripen up too! Bringing some inside helped, but we've also had some rain and cooler temps again so they are ripening on the vine too. I plan on getting more jars on Friday to can some tomatoes too. I definitely love having a garden!

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

that is great! I bet the kids are gonna love the pickles you made. I went down to the garden yesterday and there were a ton of cucumbers that needed to be picked. I should try making some pickles, I've never tried before.
Let us know how they turned out.

I want to try pickling my cucumbers. I gave 2 to my mom because I didn't know what to do with them.

I don't know how to pickle them, and am not sure we'd like them if they didn't taste right.

Awesome! Its the best to eat stuff out of your yard. I hear kids are much more likely to eat their veggies too.
