My family enjoys gardening year-round thanks to the greenhouse we added years ago and now the geodesic bio dome this past Autumn. Another treat we enjoy year-round is homemade gherkin relish usually from the garden harvest if it was a good year. Pickles make a great appetizer or addition to the appetizer table and even to enjoy with dinner. In this post I want to share a new favorite recipes of mine from a garden gal I met last year at the Garden Blogger Conference. It is a recipe from one of my favorite garden and cookbooks : The Good Life: Four Glorious Seasons in My Country Garden by Sarah O’Neil
You must stop over to Sarah’s site to check out great recipes like Pickled Green Tomatoes, Pickled Radish Seed Pods and another one of my favorites Strawberry Christmas Mince Pies. Sarah The Real Gardener’s Recipes at : http://www.sarahthegardener.co.nz/#!the-recipes/c1sk1

One of the things I love about social media is I can carry on a conversation with great gals like Sarah who gardens in New Zealand basically anytime. When I asked Sarah if I could share her recipe she ran out to her garden and snapped a few photos of her beautiful cucumber crops. In New Zealand they are just starting their summer season as we wait for winter to arrive. Another bonus with being connected with talented gardeners online from around the world is you get to enjoy gardening year-round.
