The title may seem confusing if you do not understand the use of a comma.
I spent an entire afternoon canning 36 large jars of pickles. Go here for the recipe.This happened because when I bought the 20 lbs of cucumbers from the farmer in the morning he just eyeballed the amount. Turns out he sold 35 lbs to me instead. After weighing out all the produce I realized I needed another case of jars and two more gallons of vinegar. It looks like all my trading this year will be in pickles, which is a good thing since the weather really is affecting the fruit so I am not swimming in extra jam right now.
Speaking of the weather the garlic finally was ready to harvest. The empty space it left is already being fought over by the squash and sweet potato vines. After braiding the garlic, I like to let it hang for at least a month before using any, but since I used all the remaining garlic from last year in the copious amount of pickles I may have to break that rule a little.
