  • Spinach, feta cheese make great pork recipe

    I do not know about you, but I have been busy putting up pickle relish.

    I have cucumbers coming out my ears, and that is remarkable since in the past I have told you how good we are at growing zucchini. 

    I picked a cucumber the other day that must weigh three pounds.  Of course, it wasn’t used for the relish.
