Please excuse the steam*.
It is currently, according to weather.com, 92 degrees Fahrenheit, but it “feels like” 105 due to the humidity. To say it’s a bit steamy is an understatement.
We picked a bumper crop of cucumbers this morning!
Too hot to garden, we’re getting some pickling done this afternoon . . . I’m trying several recipes including a few from my favorite pickling cookbook, The Joy of Pickling, as well as a variation of this one for a light-vinegar refrigerator pickle, and some lacto-fermented full-sours and Bubbie’s knock-offs. Wish me luck!
Oh, and by the way, those cucumbers are meant to be yellow . . . and round.
Still waiting patiently for these ones to ripen . . .
*I cleaned off the lens three times to take four pictures and I still got steam on each and every one!
