Turns out, I'm a bit of a baby when it comes to excessive heat. This is no secret to anyone that knows me, but I've finally admitted it to myself. So, when the heat and humidity finally released it's hold on our area, I cautiously made my way to the garden and raised beds and found that I had really neglected my produce picking recently.
I picked a huge basket of Roma tomatoes, a pail of green beans, a pail of cucumbers and topped off another bucket with cherry tomatoes. My husband, Mike, had pulled carrots the previous evening, so I got those scrubbed and cleaned.
My next project was to complete the final step of my Cravin County Pickles. The recipe is a crock style method and gives you these wonderful, sweet, crisp bread and butter pickles. I tried them last year for the first time and now I'm hooked.
|Onions and tators: had to get them out of the ground, the wet weather was starting to rot some of them.|
That's it for another action packed day at OK Acres (right), so..........
TaTa for now everyone.
