Ok, I'm into gardening. There's something about getting
dirt under my fingernails that is fun.
I also enjoy fresh veggies! Mmmm, there's nothing like 'em!
So this has been a busy spring, and I still have more to plant.
One of the things I do is grow cucumbers for pickling.
I entered some into the state fair and got 4th place! (I thought
they were 1st place winners myself!)
Anyway, Dill pickles have been a favorite since I was a kid. I
helped my granny make pickles, and she was the best!
Granny taught me how to pack 'em. How to make the brine.
She showed me how to can them so you could eat pickles all
I like dill pickles! Not sweet pickles, or sour pickles. Some I
like to kick a bit with cyanne pepper. My wife & the kids will
eat the garlic dills, but don't care for the hot, so I make them
for myself. (Some of my buddies like 'em hot too!)
