This year, I only planted a couple of cucumber plants (about 3 each, slicers and pickling cukes). Last year I went nuts and planted way more than that and we are still up to our eyeballs in pickles. I didn't want a repeat of that. I think I may have skimped a little too much on my plants this year because of the overproduction from last year. Maybe one of these days I'll get it figured out.
In addition to the pickling cucumbers, I'm also trying to avoid making eye contact with the pile of massively overripe bananas on the counter. I already have more frozen bananas than humanly necessary and I've been charged with making banana muffins. But, I really dread turning on the oven when it's over 80 degrees in the house.
Are you preserving anything this weekend? (And, yeah, I'm going to pretend that it hasn't been 8 months since I last blogged something).
