We are picking 20 – 30 cucumbers every day.
Jack will eat about 4-5 a day he read it lowers blood sugar and cholesterol. I will eat 1 or 2 every few days.
We make cucumber, tomato, and onion salad with Italian dressing it’s yummy. We chop up enough to last a few days.
In the past, Jeanelle and I have made bread and butter and sweet pickles. This is the first time either of us has made dills.
The first batch made 8 quarts I will probably do 8 more tomorrow.
Since Jack is diabetic he does not need the sweet pickles so were not making those this year. I am not much of a pickle person but will eat a dill pickle a few times a year.
We are having a hard time finding jars I know it is the season for canning but its never been like this. I guess everyone’s getting domesticated while quarantining.
Our garden and Jeanelle’s are both very productive this year there has been just enough rain to make them flourish.
There is never a shortage of garden pickers with the four youngest grandkids being close by. Sophia informed us she is the cucumber expert.
A good year with a garden is when it produces enough vegetables to share with your friends and family.
