We are finally getting an abundance of cucumbers from our garden, which means, of course, it's time for pickles! My helper Jordan has been asking if he could be the one to make them, so a few days ago we bought the required spices, gathered up our cukes, and Jordan started slicing away.

Jordan says his favorite part was using a sharp knife for the first time!

He cut up a lot of cukes! He's a diligent little guy (when he wants to be!)

Adding the spices to the jars...

Loading up the slices...

Proud boy (and daddy) with his 4 jars of pickles

These are refrigerator pickles, so they don't require any actual canning skills, lol. We've already made a second batch of 4 jars, though, and my refrigerator will only hold so much. I guess learning to can will be next on our list of skills to conquer!

By the way, the pickles are YUMMY!! :)
