Having made up some pickling vinegar I picked my first 3 gherkins and put them under salt for 24 hrs. Rinsed and dried them before dropping them into the jar of vinegar. I am now underway with my mini production line. I picked another 3 yesterday, hopefully, I will have a jar full by the end of the season. There are plenty of nucleus baby gherkins on the 2 plants which are loving the heat.
