It’s official. I’ve picked my first two pickling cukes of the year. I want it noted for the record that I did share one of the cucumbers with Rob. They were so delicious. I love cucumbers. They’ve been my favorite ever since I was a kid. My grandpa used to have a big garden every year. I remember going over there and heading straight for the garden to see if there were any cucumbers to pick.
This is the first year I am growing English or Burpless cucumbers. Here’s one starting to grow:
The cucumbers are doing really well this year and growing like crazy. We built a cucumber trellis this past weekend so they don’t overtake the entire raised garden bed.
My Green Zebra tomatoes are doing good. They should be ready soon. I can’t wait.
