Pickles finally

I was ready to make these pickles yesterday, but found that none of my quart sized canning jars had wide mouths, so I headed to Walmart before dinner last night and got a few boxes.

Next job on the agenda is to clean, blanch and package the next batch of green beans for the freezer, and do some pre dinner veggie prep. The only gardening job I intend to do today is hand water the newly planted seeds before I head to the studio for the rest of the day.

    Wow June. Those pickles make my mouth water. I feel like I'm back in Flushing, Queens again having a couple dills with a hot corned beef or pastrami sandwich. I try to curtail my love for pickles due to the salt content. Anyway, hope you & Jim are well, especially Jim with the vertebrate situation. Hope he's on the mend. Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Bummer about the salt. I hope these are going to taste like the barrel pickles we used to buy in the Delancey/Houston street area of NYC when I was a little girl. You'd get a big pickle wrapped in white paper for a nickel. It was a meal! LOL
