I had to munch on a few pickles too after we got on this subject.  I like Bloody Marys too.  I put pickle or olive juice in them too.   :happy1: :happy1:  May have to have one tonight. Or two.

I love’em too, but tend to make them with a little too much vodka. They tend to sneak up on me and the lights go out after two good sized ones.

With a 16' trellis I've been doing refrigerator pickles it seams every other day while they are cranking out. So last year I tried my hand at canning a few jars, man they turned out mushy, great flavor but no snap. They were cut up so maybe keep em whole???

recipes are merely suggestions!! :sleazy: :happy1:

I had that problem in the past even with the pickle being while, I just decided to try 10 minutes and they turn out fine. All you need to do is get it hot enough for the lid to seal!👍

My mom used to make some sweet chunky pickles & used green food coloring. Very crisp. Called them crystal pickles. No idea why. I'm sure glenn has lots of sweet pickle recipes... :whistling:

I do like those real green ones too Dutch.  I also like bread and butter pickles.  They are quick to make. Man I need some cukes.  lol  Did you see how expensive they are in the stores now.  I will wait till summer.

Speaking of pickles the thing I have never made but just love them are pickled beets.  Man those are good.  I can drink some of that brine too.

Whilst I was lighting the grill yesterday I peered over the porch railing to see that our daffodils are starting to emerge. As cold as its been I could hardly believe it. They are on the south side of the house however ~ 2 feet away from the basement wall. I know there was no frost along the east side of the house last Thursday when I checked but it didn't dawn on me to look for any of the spring bulbs then.  :doah:

Yesterday, Saw the crocuses have started poking through out in the bed by the lilac bushes. Scraped the leaves away from the sprouts so they'll hopefully take off a little faster. Need to get them moved this next fall if possible. Will be cutting the lilacs out of there too as they've run their course. They were supposed to be dwarf variegated lilacs. Well, at least they got the lilacs & variegated part right. 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Good old Wedge Nursery. :rolleyes: :rotflmao: I see we have lots more bulbs coming to life in the bed by the house. More jonquils, hyacinths and tulips where I've stuck some of the spring bulb pots the past couple years. Ooooo! Almost forgot, saw some rhubarb starting to show up under last year's residue. Man I could go for a big ol' hunk of fresh out of the oven rhubarb pie or sauce with Schwan's vanilla ice cream!  :happy1:

I got my seeds on order today, I'll start them when they show up.

I'm going to add another box to my raised beds just to try Glenns dill again (maybe it will do better there)

Got string bean & cucumber seed for my birthday.  Took a couple packages of frozen string beans over to the lady who has been on hospice care along with a spring bulb planter. Yesterday the pussy willows were ready. Thought it was late but actually about on schedule according to the date on most year's pictures. Just getting started. The west side of the main bush was pretty nice while the east side had a ways to go yet. There were some other bushes I couldn't get to because the water was too high. Some of those are female bushes so they'll be good for a while yet.
