Happy face

Pickles are fairly easy to make.. no peeling is necessary. I used to make the bread 'n' butter ones but have made the dills too. I got Mrs Weiss brand pickle mix from the grocery store & used that. They turned out great!! I always used the smaller cucumbers for the whole pickles & the bigger ones I sliced on a meat slicer to make them all the same size., pack the pickles in a jar. You get the pickle mix really hot & pour over the cucumber slices in the jar,seal & leave them set.

Thinking of starting some spaghetti squash plants. This is usually the best time to start the seeds before it gets too hot. Have some milk jugs to get me started. Usually get some very large squash about five pounds. Have the potting soil ready to stat planting,

Hard one for me to decide on just one! But zucchini and yellow squash comes to mind along with tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers...I really can't say just one!

Papaya

This year I am really hooked on papaya. Use it every day in a smoothie in the morning mixed with other fruit. Cooked at night mixed in a stir fry or roasted around meats cooking as a tenderizer. Planted my own tree which can produce over a 100 pounds of fruit a year. Can eat it green cooked like a vegetable in soups and mixed dishes or shred like coleslaw. So far it is doing ok with the cooler temperatures.
