Didn't make soup this week, but did put up two types of (vinegar) pickles. The first is my old standby pickled jalapenos to preserve a truly gorgeous lot of peppers from the CSA. The second is my first attempt at "hamburger dill" pickles using some of the cucumbers from my garden.
I planted three kirby vines from 3 different vendors at the farmer's market. Two of them were duds (though I think I damaged at least one of them trying to train it), but the third climbed like a champ and has been a champion producer!!!
School starts tomorrow, so we've spent the holiday weekend running around with last-minute pants shopping, haircuts and other pre-school prep work. I've got too many books going at once and can't seem to settle down to any of them.
