I used this easy recipe from A Gardener's Table but added some garlic and some hot chili flakes. I also pierced each one with a fork as per the bloggers revised instructions to help with the pickling process. Three days and we will see how they came out.

So what do you do when someone gives you a vegetable you have never seen or heard of before? Google it. Today, thanks to the bounty from Christine's garden, I came home with Mexican Sour Gherkins or sanditas that are now on their way to being tasty little pickle bites.
Yesterday, I traveled upstate to see my my old friend Lawrence and his wife Christine and their son Rowan. We Lawrence and I went on an amazing hike the Undivided Lots Trail on the Mohonk Preserve. It's incredible and while I am not the rock climber that he is, this was perfect for me. The view was amazing.

After our hike I got to spend the afternoon with the family and Christine, who is an amazing organic farmer- I am totally going to give her lofty title- her green thumb is brilliant. She sent me home with some of the best produce I have ever had. Check it out! I can't wait to cut into the watermelon after I get home from the gym later this afternoon. Thanks to the family for great day. It was a great end to the summer before I head back to school on Tuesday!!
