No, not that kind of "huntress"......hehehehehehe, but I have been known to go a-hunting for snakes in the yard.
I'm talking about hunting in the garden, of course.....hehehehe
I have a very small garden this year, so much so that all the cucumber vines are entangled as they run together. Believe it or not, I love poking through all those vines looking for cucumbers, tomatoes and bell peppers every day. It's rather cathartic.
Those cucumbers grow quickly and tend to hide out under the shade of the leafy foliage.
I have a fence around my little garden to keep the rabbits out. Every morning, we go
through the same routine.....I walk out the back door, spot two rabbits nibbling around the fence
and start the chase. Around and around and around we go until I get dizzy and the rabbits
make a break for the bird feeder to harass the poor birdies and eat their seeds
that has fallen to the dirt.....sigh
It take me a few minutes to catch my breath before I start picking veggies. You'd think
I'd be able to stop myself from chasing them but, alas, I've not broken myself
from this habit.
These days I'm into canning the cucumbers into sweet pickles which take about 3 days
but it's well worth the effort.
There are many recipes on the Internet that are inspiring and I have tried a couple.
Mom and Cowboy love the pickles and so do all my neighbors.
Well, I'm off to rinse the cucumbers and begin the next step in the process.
On another note: I'd like to thank everyone who participated in my "big give-away." I didn't get to respond to all the comments yesterday so this is a great big THANK YOU ALL.
I'll be doing another give away in the fall, so stay tuned for that.
