Now This Is A Pickle...!
I don't know how this big boy managed to hide from me for so long, but he did!
Mother Nature can really hid those veggies, can't she? I go to the garden and get okra every day and always look at the other plants while I'm there. Finally today I spotted this bad boy hiding under a vine on the ground!
At first I thought I must have found a small watermelon, but then I remembered I didn't plant any! Anyway, it's just a little too big for my quart canning jars, don't you think?
It's about 18 inches long and weighs just at 1.5 pounds...if my scale is right! Feels heavier than that! How could I miss it for so long?
When placed next to a banana at Mom's house...you can get a feel for just how large this thing is!
I was going to leave it in Mom's fruit bowl on the table...but for some reason, it wouldn't fit! Can't imagine why...!
Anyway, if the squash and tomatoes catch up to the cukes...I'll be overwhelmed! Might have to rethink the whole canning thing, and just eat a lot of stuff from the garden. I can see a LOT of salad and bread and butter pickles in my future!
Gotta love it when a plan comes together! Now, how about some fresh coffee on the patio? Want salad with that?
