Pickling

If you are craving pickles, you should head on over! Yesterday I picked 7 fresh cucumbers from the garden. Knowing that I couldn't eat enough salads for that many cucumbers to be involved in, I used some old jam jars and a pickle mix and made some of my own pickles! It was very fun. Charlotte and I got a lot done today - we hung at the pool with our friends for a long time, did sock laundry (the worst!), weeded the garden and mowed the foot long grass in the backyard despite much protest from the lawnmower. I also had to get out some weedkiller. Apparently some very determined weeds are busting right through the landscape fabric and mulch in the rose bed. More mulch may be needed. Anyway, it is good to keep busy while Helaman works so much. We miss you H!

I'm impressed! How fun to make pickles. I should probably start a garden first... And I hear you on the weeds. No matter what method we've tried - weeds make it through.
