time to pick cucumbers and make pickles

Every year about this time,

my wife gets into the pickle making mode.

IMG_1194This year was tough on getting good stand of cucumbers.

We planted three different times

as each time we planted,

it seem to flood and drown the plants.

++++++++

Once we get plenty of cucumbers for pickles,

we will put out a sign for

“free cucumbers”.

plus other ingredients.

About every ten days the jars are

turned over.

She will make around 300 jars of  pickles

which will include ‘bread n butter’, hot dill

and regular dill.

AND SHE GIVES ALL OF THEM TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS!
