This is the Cucumber Pickle I make for the gentleman next door. He is so kind to me blowing my driveways and porches etc...It's my small way of saying "Thank You"...Back in the summer when I gave him a box of pint jars filled with these pickles he was over joyed. The other day he confessed "He's out" ...Next year I will have to make him a closet full. I am happy to have found something I can truly enjoy giving him that he can't buy...
