This time of the year the garden is going strong. We have been eating yellow squash and zuccihni like crazy! We have also had plenty of cucumbers, which I LOVE out of the garden. I had an abundance so I decided to make pickles!
The ones on the right are sweet pickles and the ones on the left are hot pickles. We don't eat that many so this amount should be perfect. I have never tried the hot pickles before its something new I thought I would try.
The sweet pickles are made using my grandmothers recipe.
I know you can't really see the recipe here but you can tell that this recipe is yellowed and old. I'm pretty sure this is my moms hand writing. At the top of the page it says "Moms Sweet Pickles". My mom asked me if I rewrote it on a card or something. I like it just the way it is. For some reason it seems like the condition of the recipe makes it better, more character or something.
Today I spent the day at the pool with my sissy, SIL, and their young'ens. Nice day! Then I came home and canned green beans! The corn will be ready by the end of the week and probably more beans. This is a busy time of year.
Did I mention that I am going back to work on August 8th for an 8 week position at school...it stinks that my summer is getting cut short!!
Does anyone else can their food. Sometimes I feel like a loner in my circle of friends!
