Sandra gave me a jar of pickles from her North Georgia garden back in July, and said they’d be ready to eat September first.  It was tough holding off while they sat steeped in dill on the counter, and now they’re almost gone after four days of September.  Click here for more from the mountains.

This is my first go at cukes, and they are curious.  The vine flowered a sunshine yellow over a month ago, and I’m waiting for green oblongs.  Instead, pokemon-esque footballs connect runners to flowers.
