August 21st Anja and the Pickle Tree
Every year pickles are made under this tree. We started calling it the pickle tree. Cucumbers are chosen by their size and added to large (new) garbage can along with the other pickle incgredients (I don't know what they are as I HATE pickles, lol). The can of pickles is place inside an old cut off plastic barrel and cold water from the well continuously runs to keep the pickles cold. When they are ready a few jars are canned as people request them. But they are mostly just picked out of the barrel and eaten.
Anja got to try the pickles today. She approves.
