A rainy year, good for growing cucumbers, which means good for dill pickles! I have to sow more dill. I’m about out. My recipe calls for fresh dill and fresh dill heads, and you can’t buy dill heads in the store.

It gets hot in here making these pickles, so a nice glass of sparkling lemonade is just what I need!

As for work, I’m about to sign off on another contract and will probably start late September. I just finished a major gig, am working on a cover, colors for another major gig due in September, so a full plate.

I will be able to spend most of the next 60 days on commissions and catching up on orders, though. I’m way behind on commissions, and I hang my head in shame.pickles-15
