Day 9 #blog12daysxmas Lazy sunday

After church meeting and lunch at Mum's I came home to attack the vast crop of cucumbers we're accumulating. I'm making Bread & Butter Pickles.

Cucumbers for bread & butter pickle

We have quite a nursery of monarch's on our fence. They all seem to like this bit of real estate. We have 4 on this part (one outside the photo) and one actually travelled about 4 metres up the fence line to it's own little patch.

I hope we'll be quick enough to see them emerge.


  1. I don't think I've ever eaten bread and butter pickles .... doesn't sound like cucumber at al!

  2. There's a chutney you can make with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and chillis ... Very yummy

  3. What a busy wee domestic goddess you are :-) Hope you are around when the butterflies appear.
