We have tried growing garlic too, without any success. However garlic chives thrive down here. But the dill dies in the summer because it's too hot. I have let it go to seed & the seeds don't come up. I've pretty much given upon using fresh dill in my pickles.
I'm a fiend for garlic, as are most of my friends. I've never had much luck growing it, though.
Those garlic chives come on like machine gun fire. I tried several times to eradicate them but they always came back.
Those gardens also have dill sprouting all over the place, unless the new owners wiped it out. Once you let dill go to seed you will find it popping up in completely unexpected places, forever.
I know what you mean John.
Today I put up your pickle recipe...Was easy...Don't know if I can wait 6 weeks though, LOL!
Thanks for sharing this recipe,
Sorry Man, even with the chips you have to wait 6 weeks.
Thanks for the recipe.
If I cut the pickles to chips instead of spears, would I still need to wait 6 weeks before eating? My kids aren't very patient once they start eating the regular chips I make with the Ball kosher dill mix.
Wow I can't believe I missed this. I make summer pickles, I make beet pickles, I have even tried watermelon pickles (I believe there is a thread here), Those looks great and if you can use Walmart cucumbers I am impressed.
I have tried 21 day pickles and lime pickles but never with any success. I love the garlic dill too. I bet some cocktail onions would be good in 'em. I put them in my pickle beets.....
Those look great.
In my top 5 on the list now!
Way to go Al sounds like a real easy and tasty recipe I'm to a garlic man love pickle garlic cloves. Will for sure be trying this.
Great Post Al, we love Garlic Dills going to have to give this a try Thanks for post it
That's great Gary!
Hey Al, we made a batch of your pickles last night now were are in a holding pattern
they sure look pretty
I make a batch every 3 or 4 weeks so I always have a constant supply.
do they keep indefinitely in the fridge as much as we love pickles i don't think they will make it that long.
