you guessed it
After all of my complaining about the rain, I'm pleased to report that the sun is shining and the cucumbers are growing.
My garden is very tiny (4 tomato plants, 4 cucumber vines and a variety of herbs).
I love the fresh scent and crisp texture of a fresh from the garden cuke. They are far superior to those squishy, wax covered things we find at the grocery stores most of the year.
It will soon be too hot for my dill. I think the only reason it's still going is due to all of the rain we've had. I'll be sorry to see it go as it pairs so well with the cucumbers.
Many years ago I was watching M*rtha St*wart and she was talking about adding cucumber slices to her water. I made a mental note to try it some day. It sounded very refreshing to me. It's a bit embarassing to admit how long it's taken me to get around to actually doing it. Egads, I can procrastinate on some of the simplest things. Ha, I'll bet you can't relate to that. I know my husband can't (as he reminds me often :).
Before I sign off, I want to extend a Great Big Thank You to all who came to visit by way of Vee's recent post. Since you had to listen to me complain about the weather, I now offer you a consolation prize in the form of a pink hibiscus. If you have a dog, I can also enlighten you with the fact that the flowers aren't toxic to your furry friend. I got this info today straight from the vet who looked into it after I told him Peanut seems to have a taste for hibiscus flowers.
