Summer Harvest

I've got enough home grown veggies to fill a little basket, and for the first time in ages, we had sun at mid-day yesterday, for a bright and beautiful photo.

Don't let the brand-name pickle jar fool you. These are my homemade pickles. I used the same basic method as I did for my favorite Mexican Pickled Carrots recipe, only with pickling spices, dill and garlic. I haven't tasted them yet, but they smell good so far!


  1. how do you think your pickling recipe would be on my okra if i get any ??? Your vegies look wonderful!!!

  2. I dunno. Isn't okra um, slimy? I've never tasted it. Anyway, my pickles were just OK. Maybe a little too vinegary. But not horrible (except hubby and one son do not like them. Other son has not tried them yet.)

  3. OMG yum, yum and yum! Can you believe that I had not clicked on you to follow. What the heck! All fixed now!


Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
