First batch of canning for 2012!

Today in WI it was hot and I was busy...but it was still a good day. Yesterday I'd picked some cucumbers from the garden, but didn't have enough to can more than a couple jars. Well, thanks to my generous neighbors (thanks guys!) who are already done canning their pickles and offered to fill up my bucket, I was able to can 15 quarts of dill pickles.

And every one sealed! My cucumber plants will really start to produce in a few days, so there will be a couple more batches. I need them with the way my youngest eats 'em.

We have hamburger dills, baby dills (those two jars are mine), and pickle spears that are a favorite of my youngest son and my sisters, who put them in their Bloody Marys up at the cabin (my sisters, not my son!).

Next up...BEANS

Have a great weekend everyone ~



  1. Those look great! I love cucumbers/pickles. :-)

  2. Thanks, Rhonda! I've gotten 50 pints of beans done since this post...26 of them today, along with 6 pints more of pickles. :)

    I love filling up my pantry shelves.
