Mother and the girls were making pickles...

"Mother and the girls were making cucumber pickles, green-tomato pickles, and watermelon-rind pickles; they were drying corn and apples, and making preserves. Everything must be saved, nothing wasted of all the summer's bounty."
-Laura Ingalls Wilder, from Farmer Boy
Yesterday, my girls and I and my friend, Pam, made dill pickles-sixty jars of them! Now all we have to do is to wait patiently until October 3rd to eat them!
