This year, my husband decided to begin gardening. This makes me happy for many reasons. In the past, he has not been a vegetable-eating person. With the exception of carrots – and I don’t even like carrots (womp, womp). But with planting your own veggies, you almost have no choice but to partake of their goodness. And wouldn’t you know it, James has started to eat more veggies!
His plan has been to can most of what we harvest (because he planted copious amounts of vegetables), and if all goes according to plan, we won’t have to purchase any vegetables throughout the winter (another reason this makes me so happy)! James decided to practice the canning process by making pickles (which are one of my most favorite foods… ever). DISCLAIMER: these scrumptious mini cucumbers are not from our garden. Ours are still growing ;-)
I chose to document James’ first attempt at pickling/canning. I feel it was worth the elbow nudges and repeated requests to get out of the way. I hope you agree!
Thanks for stopping by! xo, Courtney
