Planting and Pickling
So much life, so little time. Seems like I need to get rid of the time component. Hmmm...
Today is garden day. The beautiful weather is an opportune time to replant the cool weather crops for fall. I'll be putting in kale and collards as well as some lettuces. I am also canning some cucumbers for winter pickles.
My recipe is simple. I put in some onion and garlic (from my garden) with the dill and cucumbers. This year I'm experimenting with grape leaves. I've put one in each jar. The belief is that the pickles will retain their crunchy texture. I'll be sure to let you know.
So it's off to the kitchen for me.
