I spent the better part of this morning plowing the garden with my new 16″ rear-tine Huskee tiller. It’s a little late in Alabama for the usual planting season to start, but we’ve had a late winter with wildly fluctuating weather. I’m excited about the months to come and the tasty homegrown food that awaits.

I made some watermelon rind preserves earlier this week. So, for my weekend snack, I decided to make a couple of peanut butter and watermelon rind preserves sandwiches. Yummy!
I just wanted to give a special thank you post to Granny here on my blog. She taught me how to make dill pickles tonight. With just a few cucumbers from my garden, we made six pints of pickles that’ll be ready for eatin’ in a few weeks.
After several weeks of work and love, my garden finally produced its first squash. Now, I’m just waiting for the 50 or so tomatoes to become ripe.
