First harvest...on May 12

Central Texas has seen unprecedented rains this spring. Our garden plants have exploded:

The tomato plants can hardly be contained in their cages and the cucumber vines run up their trellis. The rains spurred growth - too much growth - in our first harvest of pickling cucumbers. If we don't grab them when they're small, an overnight rain can double their size by our next garden visit.

Now that we know how diligent we must be with the cucumber harvest, pickling time is upon us!
