first one of the season.

You may think this is corny...blogging about a cucumber, but I was so excited this evening when I went out and found this.

It's our first cucumber of the season out of our garden. It's a pickling cucumber and it's HUGE! About 7 inches long and 4cm in diameter. If they all come up like this, pickling could be a challenge.
Jeremy's grandma Mable has the absolute best pickling recipe. She's an amazing cook and has so much experience as she lived pretty much her whole life on a farm and gardening in the summer was their whole livelyhood to survive in the North Dakota winters.

So excited when more come in and we can start canning!
