Got Myself Into A Pickle

Wholly Cheese and Weasels !!!! I got into such a "Pickle" this weekend, and by "Pickle" I mean 22 quarts of home canned Bread and Butter Pickles to grace our pantry shelves and two quarts plus giant sized mayo jugs of refrigerator pickles.

First 12 Quarts canned on August 8th, then.....

10 Quarts canned on August 9th and

two quarts refrigerator pickles. 

Didn't take pics of the jugs since they are the white Kraft mayo jugs that I get at Costco so you can't see the pickles. All of this came from at least eight dozen cucumbers from our garden and there are still lots more getting ready to be harvested. I'm not complaining though, the less I need from the store the better and these are 100% pesticide free.
Wish our tomatoes would start to ripen up, we harvested all of the radishes, but sadly most of them had white larva eating away at them only got about a dozen good ones. Been harvesting Italian sweet peppers and cutting and freezing them for later use. Will harvest the rest of the Basil, Dill, Oregano, Rosemary and Mint this weekend if it doesn't rain again.
I can't believe I didn't update at all in July. 
Not that I really had anything to show for the month, I did stitch a bit, but that is locked away in our pop-up camp trailer until the hubs decides to open it up again. And I had two sewing finishes also locked inside the pop-up. Went on a three day camping trip and two day trips that I need to sort out the pictures for where does the time go.

Well that's it for today. Until next time ......

Take Care Everyone &
Happy Canning and Stitchin'

Hugs, Sandy
