A little bit of everything. I love being a husband and a father, a musician, a gardener and the outdoors.

Garden Report 06/27/2014
Went out this morning and picked a huge pan full of goodies. Mostly squash and cucumbers but had some peppers and a big mess of green beans as well. My loyal helper dug right in and we got the job done.
After a fun day of pottery painting and swimming we came home to relax. Mandi made some fauxtato soup and roasted the green beans. They were great with a little homemade dip.
So what do you do when life gives you a mess of cucumbers? Make refrigerator pickles! We sliced, salted, chilled, mixed, vinegared, sugared, and spiced until we had 4 pints of sweet pickles. Don't want to fool with a water bath so we'll just keep them in the fridge. Put some sweet onion and banana peppers in with them so they taste extra good.
