Farm - 1st batch of pickles this year

Monday, August 08, 2011

We went out to our farm on Saturday morning. The weeds were terrible in both gardens. I had to pull weeds & more weeds to get to the cucumbers.
This was all day event.

On Sunday I made first patches of pickles.

Planning returned trip on Friday to the farm. I will have a record crop of cucumbers this year. I always say too much work but taste so good to have fresh pickles.

I counted 10 butterflies in the fields.

Here our tenants at the farm.

Sara taking a rest.

Sara & I went hiking on Sunday afternoon.

    Those pickles remind me so much of my In Laws farm garden years ago. I wish I had truly appreciated it as much as I should have.

    Beautiful pickles! It is a blessing to live so close with nature even though it is a lot of work to operate a farm. You have so many talents---many people cannot even cook a meal let alone preserve vegetables they have grown themselves. Very impressive!
