Lebanese Cucumbers

This morning after the rain had stopped Sienna and I went out to check out the veggies and to my surprize there were 3 cucumbers there. I was told that once the flower dies it's not long until the cucumber is ready to eat. It's hard to believe because when the flower died the cucumber was about 3 cms long and now a week later it looks like a real cucumber. I was so shocked and extremely delighted that we are growing a new veggie and are having such great success. I can't wait to pick one and try it in a few days time. Starting our veggie garden back in April this year was one of the best things we have done as it's brought us so much enjoyment and good healthy food at the same time.

  1. We had lovely cucumber in our meal last night - mixed with coriander and mint and spring onion, then dressed with fish sauce, lime juice and sweet chilli .... we added this to yummy lettuce cups with a few other things - a good dietry choice I would say ;-)!
