Zucchini pickles.

Our zucchini plant has finally slowed down, but no worries, we still have loads of them in the fridge waiting to be eaten. I was talking to my mom and she gave me the idea of pickling them. Ive never thought of that before, but decided to give it a try and found a recipe online to follow.

Making pickles makes me think of living on a farm and the simpler things in life. Growing our own food and then preserving it so it lasts into the winter time. Taking care of chikens and baking bread. Sitting outside on the porch after a hot day, drinking iced tea. Something about that image really calls to our family. Maybe someday...
