Aaron grows a lot of different vegetables on his farm but the one thing that got them started in the very beginning was the cucumber. So I guess that makes me a cucumber farmer’s wife which I think inevitably leads to pickles, don’t you think? This is my first attempt at making pickles and I’m using Persian and Japanese because those are the two types they grow. I also threw in some beets while I was in the pickling mood. I used this recipe for the pickles and this for the beets.
