This summer we have had back to back to back to back to back shows. We were traveling and doing markets! Coco declared a time out!
I have sadly been neglecting two very important things in my life. Things that I don't get to enjoy year around, so I need to use my time together wisely!
I also need to tame the shrew...well tame my garden!
Where's Coco? Can you see my mass of almost 6ft tall tomato plants? FYI we had THREE red tomatoes so it's looking like BLT in our very near future!
This year is the first time I've actually grown cucumbers. I've planted them for a couple years but they are totally out of control now!
What is one to do with all these cucumbers? Why make pickles of course!

How To Make Icebox Pickles
- 6 cups sliced, unpeeled cucumbers
- 1 cup sliced red onion
- 1 cup sliced green bell pepper
- 1 Tablespoon celery seed
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 cup white vinegar
It seems easy enough, even more me!
My first, "OH CRAP" moment came when I realized I didn't have those awesome huge glass jars. I already had it in my mind I was going to make these! I used two bowls and just divided everything in half.
We also added vinegar, sugar, and water. I didn't think I needed to take pictures?! You're Welcome!
I will try to be a better blogger but don't get your hopes up! :)
Mr. Melling: Why is New Jersey called the Garden State? Gracie Hart: Because it's too hard to fit "oil and petro-chemical refinery state" on a license plate?
Happy Almost Birthday Sandy!
