Canning dill pickles fresh from the garden

Hello dear blogging friends.  How are you?  Our garden has put out an abundance of cucumbers this year so I am canning pickles.  I canned 11 quarts!  

We're a big dill pickle family!  I will probably can more before the summer is over.  


I want to show you our zinnias.  These I started from seeds and they finally bloomed.  

I brought them inside where we can enjoy them.  

Have a good week!

I love dill pickles but have never tried making them...congratulation. My zinnias just started blooming, aren't they wonderful!

I tried canning pickles last year but they weren't very crisp. Kind of soggy. Hope yours turn out better. Zinnias are one of my favorite flowers. Mimi

Wow, Donna, you have been busy. Your pickles look yummy!
My cucumbers were doing great, but now seem to be at the end. Oh well, they were good while they lasted.
Love your pretty bouquet of zinnias. They are such a cheerful flower.

Donna, I love dill pickles! But I've never tried making them. Your's look really good. I also love zinnias but don't really grow them much. Another thing I should amend. The garden looks lovely. :)
