The other day I was able to harvest a good number of pickling cukes and some fresh dill. As a treat for our residents I sliced the cukes, layered them with the dill weed, piled on some ice cubes and topped them first with some vinegar and then salt on the ice. A few hours later the ladies had fresh pickles with lunch. Such simple treats make having a garden worthwhile. A simple pesto can be made with fresh basil, olive oil, and pine or walnuts. No cooking involved! Just boil the pasta, top with the pesto and eat. I love easy.
