Gherkins -An indulgence

I hadn't finished the peaches when my gherkin lady rang to say she had gherkins for me. I don't have enough suitable space to grow the number of plants used to get enough gherkins to pickle and as I am the only one that likes them I need to use the vegetable garden areas for family food. So each year i get gherkins from a local lady who grows them commercially. It is a bit of an indulgence but they are so yummy on crackers with cheese, Cutting into my art time again. That's the way it goes at this harvest time of year I guess.
