First of all, I planted one tiny, little cucumber plant. From this one little plant, we gather hoards of giant cucumbers. We picked six today! Can you relate?
Who can eat so many cucumbers?
We slice the cucumbers and place them in a marinade of apple cider vinegar (1/2 cup), sugar (1/4 cup), finely chopped red onion and garlic, and some seasonings like salt, pepper, ground mustard, and fennel. We let the cucumber slices (our sweet little pickles) marinate for an hour or so, and then we feast.
I put the cucumbers on the counter in a big bowl with a container of toothpicks nearby. Soon, all the cucumbers have disappeared. (This is why you have no picture today.)
If you have too many cucumbers in your garden, remember a quick “sweet pickle” marinade.
