Tonight we are putting up pickles, both bread and butter and dill. We grow 2 types of cukes for out pickles. Eureka for the bread and butter and regal for the dills. The eureka get fat and meaty for perfect bread and butter pickles while the regal stay smaller and tight for dills. It’s a bit of work but worth it for great pickles. By the looks of the vines we will probably do 2 or maybe even 3 more batches this season.

The summer squash is coming in great and the peppers are doing well also. We got the tomatoes in late but they are starting with some really nice sun sugar cherry tomatoes. In all we grew 7 types of cherry tomatoes including red, yellow, orange, white, black and others. The brandy-wine tomatoes are big but still green.
The peppers are getting big but the walls are still a bit thin. We fried some but for good eating they need to have thicker walls. Hopefully they will beef up in the next week or so.

Putting up pickles can be fun.
