biggrin2.gif Yeah the pickels are done... 7 quart jars and 13 pints... of dill pickels

John helped and did the slicing and it was a team effort.. he handled the hot brine so I didn't scald myself.

John cooked dinner..chicken on the barbecue, corn on the cob (yeah the sweet corn is here) there is a farm we go to and it is the best!! baked potatoes and salad.

we both pitched in and cleaned up the kitchen and I am tired.

Next year I hope to have the garden back in and grow my own cucumbers. I did have fresh dill from my herb garden. I tried a garden last year but it was hard to keep up. John is going to put raised beds in so it will be much easier than trying to crawl along the ground and then find something to get a hold of to stand up. Also should be much easier with weed control.

Bonnie,

I weed the garden by sitting on a small stool. It is one we bought for the boys when we were toilet training them. biggrin.gif I think they have out grown it now laugh.gif

We also have kneelers. It is hard to describe. It is like a small stool but you can turn it upside down and use it as kneeler then you can use the legs to help you up.

I did buy a kneeling pad but it was hopeless. Hard to get down to it and then as you say nothing to hold onto to get up. all good physio tho.

Enjoy the garden.

I am about to pickle some beetroot and make chutney.

My niece makes wonderful bread and butter pickles. She said she wasn't going to make any this year because she is the only one at her house who eats them and she still has some left from last year. My sister is driving to her house to deliver a chest this weekend - 6 hours. So we have said make the pickles. We are glad to take them off your hands!

Hi Kim, no lemon trees, citrus doesn't grow up here, if it did I know we would have lemon, oranges and grapefruit..my husband lived in AZ many years. we do have a small orchard and adding to it. we have several varieties of apple a pear tree that has 5 varieties of asian pear, a pear tree.

Mary I have tried several differnt kneelers, stools, etc.. I think we will go with the raised beds..husband had knee surgery. we are hoping to get a small green house up soon too.

Bonnie, you are an inspiration. I was brought up a country girl but live north of Sydney in the coastal sprawl now, very suburban and a little up-market. It is my intention this year to "Put up" some fruit as we say here, make some jam (jelly) and do some of that old-timey, country girl stuff. Good for the soul.
