Flowers & Pickles

 If you grew up in a rural environment and in my generation, then you know what August was all about! We would can and freeze, butcher,  harvest and pickle every garden and farm product we had on the place! Amongst all that we’d be making meals for our sizable family plus the haying crew or the combiners, depending on the year, along with whoever else showed up.  By the end of those summer days (some times around midnight) we’d  swear we never wanted to cook another meal, or wash another dish!
 No wonder I can’t let summer go by without making a few pickles at the very least. I did a dozen jars of dills last evening,(I was finished long before midnight) and this was the still life I “found” on my cupboard this morning.

    Gena, your painting reminded me of my grandma’s pickles and how much I miss her and her pickles! You have really changed how I see food. I am really noticing how beautiful fruit and vegetables can be! Thanks!
