I'll admit it. I've been pickling all summer long. I saw a friend this morning who indicated I was looking a little peaked today. I admitted to having been up cutting cukes and pickling. My hair is back, I just didn't fix it. Ah, the life! We grew Early Russian cukes this year and had a phenomenal harvest. In July, we grew 105 cucumbers. The vines are starting to slow down in the heat, but we're still getting some good ones, including the monster shown above. I harvested seeds from it for next year. They're that good.
