In our case last week, it was the radishes in our CSA. I sliced them thinly and tossed them in the pickle juice, and in a few days we had funky-spicy radish pickles.

The pickle possibilities are really endless: Cukes, of course would be great, but so would carrots, onions, garlic, green beans, beets, cauliflower, kohlrabi and on, and on....
Just don't forget that these are refrigerator pickles, meaning that you have to keep them in the--you guessed it--refrigerator, as opposed to the cabinet. But duh, right?
