DIY canning without a trusted recipe can be risky, especially when vegetables are involved... My first instinct is to suggest that you scour the web and/or the local library's cookbook section for tested similar recipes as I'm sure they're out there; what you describe is very similar to Italian giardiniera.

Hmm, sorry must've missed "dill pickle" in the ingredient list when I thought giardiniera... Scratch that as a starting point. Nevertheless, still highly recommend you take the time to find an established recipe.
