Love pickles but think they'€™re too much trouble? Not ready to take on canning? Grow these prolific cukes and then follow Margaret Roach's easy Refrigerator Pickles recipe. All that'€™s required is water, vinegar, salt, some spice, and some fresh homegrown cucumbers harvested when they are still young. On her blog, A Way to Garden, Margaret writes, "€œI think of these unprocessed pickles as a seasonal treat€; a real rite of the harvest season, so enjoy them summer-into-fall and then (as gardeners know how to by necessity) start looking forward to next year." When it'€™s time to harvest these we'€™ll let you know in our Seeder's Digest newsletter and put up a link to Margaret'€™s recipe.
