Cucumbers are growing like crazy................really every time I go out there I have to harvest about 10 so, for a family of 2 this is a lot of cucumbers.I've started making refrigerator pickles. I'm seriously thinking of stocking the apartment size fridge in the garage with them.We are awaiting the tomatoes so we can pig out on our favorite sandwich of cukes and tomato slathered with mayo salt and pepper and maybe a basil leaf or two.
They're coming but just not fast enough for us. Ten days of intense heat seems to have affected their progress, so we will be patient for a little longer and try not to pick them before they are ready.
New to the garden this year will be our own dried black beans.Little purple flowers are popping up all over the place leading me to believe that we will have a bountiful harvest.I'll keep you posted as to how they are coming along. Meanwhile I am in the kitchen if you're trying to find me. Probably making refrigerator pickles........said the hobbit
