I don't try raising vegetables at my place on account of the deer - they will just eat everything up. But my daughter, Elizabeth lives in town and has a nice little vegetable garden. She has been saving up her cucumbers so I could make some dill pickles. Grandson Airus loves dill pickles and my mother has a really terrific recipe for them. I have not canned in years, but it seemed like a good thing to do on a rainy day in late August. I made 13 quarts!
I will get the recipe posted up on my food blog sometime soon and let you know when it is there.
