BREAD AND BUTTER PICKLES TEST KITCHEN'S RECIPE


I really like this recipe!  It is a little different than the ones my grandmama made.  These are not as sweet but have a very good taste!  Chuck couldn't wait to open one and I had one that I wasn't too sure of the seal so I said go for it and taste some of these.  He sat down with a plate of them!  He likes them!  Tonight I tried one and between the Hoss Straight Eight Cucumbers picked small and this recipe I call them another addition to our pickle family.

Petunias, Verbena, and Lemon Bee Balm


I really like the pink, purple, lavender, and white combinations.  Petunias and verbena are all-time favorites with us.  The newest in this mixture is the Lemon Bee Balm.  It is delicate and pretty.  The pollinators love it for sure.  It is always covered with bees and butterflies.  I've yet to make tea from it but I've heard it's good. Today sharing pictures of these little beauties in the cute white planters.
