    Sliced cucumbers pickled preserved in lemon juice & vinegar

    With this rain the cucumbers are going from little to big overnight. I'll be doing some fermenting but until I know I like them I won't do a lot. I'll juice up a heap I think.

    When you bag I would recommend that you place some netting or mesh over the open end - we lost half a bunch recently because the possums or foxes found out how to get under the bag :(

    Keyhole gardens

    Occasionally something grows out of them. I usually just pull it up. White I like is that I can dig down in them and find tons of worms.
