    Hiya!!!

    Do any of your hermies like pickles??? Are they safe??? I think I might just make mini pickles with the mini cucumbers from my garden. . . I was just wondering if they were safe for my hermies. . .;););)

    Pickles have a TON of salt in the brine (The liquid that is in the jar) so not good for crabbies.
    They DO love fresh cucumbers though just give them that, plain.
    I had so many cukes, eggplant, broccoli and tomatoes left from our garden i have a 1 gallon freezer bag of each so they can have fresh veggies all winter.
