Put cucumbers in a large, well-washed jar, alternating them with sprigs of dill. Place the remaining greens at the very top. Add the right amount of salt and fill everything with clean, boiled, but chilled water.

Put a not very heavy press in the neck of the jar, and place the container itself inside a small basin or plastic bowl, because during the fermentation the liquid will begin to flow over the edge.
