We picked up a half bushel of small cucumbers, some fresh green beans, dill and garlic on Friday afternoon from our favorite farmers market.
Saturday morning we started early with scrubbing the cucumbers - how cute is our helper!!
We had the jars in the dishwasher sterilizing, while M and I switched off, so I ended up peeling garlic while the boys finished scrubbing the cucumbers.
Turns out I bought way to much vinegar and pickling salt, but it's not like it goes bad at least!
We cooked up the brine and then filled up the jars with dill, cucumber and garlic. When it came to pouring the brine, it was messy, but we had a system. We have 22 jars of pickles, 2 jars of beans and 1 of the sausage.
Saturday afternoon we spent outside swimming and playing
We went into town to get new lids, dropped off donations and then surprised the kids with a visit to a new park we hadn't been to before. The kids did have fun, although Em was a little fussy - turns out she's getting 3 of her eye teeth!!
