Pickling Size Share

We are harvesting some nice pickling cucumbers right now, and we would like to offer you the opportunity to receive a quantity that will enable you to make a batch of pickles.  A unit of pickling cucumbers will be five pounds.  We should have them during the next few weeks, and we will have enough for about 7 members to take 5 pounds each this week.  It will be first come, first serve, and to spread the bounty, we may end up limiting people to taking this quantity only once this season.  (I suppose this may change depending on how many people are interested in pickling.)  We don’t know how many of you are interested in pickling, but we thought we’d make the opportunity available to you.  Feel free to ask us for recipes or suggestions if you need any help.
