Refrigerator Pickles; Rain — 4 Comments

  1. I just read that our rain deficit for the year is now only 30 something percent — which is better than the 50 something percent that it was. And we are only 9mm below average for the month — which is actually still quite a lot, percentage wise, since the month is August and it never normally rains in the first half of August at all — that’s why most people still choose that period to go on holiday.

  2. I’m so sorry about your plant. 🙁 I managed to prop my pepper plants up after that terrible storm, but apparently, it took a toll because they’re not producing well now. I use tomato cages for my plants which is good and bad. I can velcro the cage to the fencing we had to put around the garden to keep the deer out, but it tends to keep the plant more bunched up. While the tomatoes will ripen, sometimes they’re difficult to reach. But my cukes are still prolific! So I’ll try this pickle recipe. Hubs will love it. 🙂

    • I’ve had the hubs make tomato cages for my Romas (I’ve never seen them here), You’re right – they get bunched up and are hard to get at. I need to have them re-done next year as the are not big enough – and also fall over lol I usually end up with ropes all over – tying the tomatoes to each other and the fence and the bean poles….
