Today began my journey in making pickles.  Made from Boston Pickling Cucumbers, I don't think these will last through September.  They need to "rest" (?) for 4-6 weeks before we can sample.  I should be able to make 12-15 more jars next month.

I will probably pickle our banana and carmen peppers too.

Admittedly, I used a jar of spice made by Ball.  Next year, I may just grow my own dill and garlic and forgo the processed spices.  Otherwise, all you need is water and vinegar.
