Gettin' Pickled



Cooler nights....
It's beginning to feel like fall!


Our cucumber vines are starting to die back now!

This pickling routine is starting to grow on me...

pickled cucumbers,

pickled beets...

pickle relish later today!!

I love the smell of the vinegar and dill

and hearing those hot jars
go plink when they seal!!

I need a longer growing season...

I'm having too much fun getting pickled!!


linking with Mary's Mosaic Monday!

What are those red things in that pickle jar? Did you run that by grandma Bertha? You are going to start smelling like a pickle!

Oh, man! That reminds me so much of my grandparent's garden and kitchen! I loved my grandmother's dill pickles and they always had lots of them.
