Cucumbers are in!

Jack and I have been watching the garden...checking it daily, yet these managed to mature without us ever noticing them doing it!

Cucumbers are funny that way....

The carrots aren't working out so well...*g*

So we sliced them up....

And tossed them with some onions, fresh tomato's, red wine vinegar, salt,  pepper and had a delicious, fresh from the garden salad!  I've decided that next year we are going to make a real garden. I've really enjoyed eating things that we have grown and knowing exactly where the food comes from along with what's been put on it! It's very satisfying and well worth the effort.

I'll post the main course tomorrow!  I got adventurous and made one of the Pioneer Woman's recent recipes! (changing it up a bit of course!)


  1. Love the fresh veggies from the garden!

  2. Yay for cucumbers!!! And yes- I know what you mean about eating from your own garden...I'm enjoying it too:)
    I got your emails ok....thank you. Glad you got mine...and sorry for the mix up- I hope it didn't wreck anyone's accounts:(

    Happy day to you and happen salad eating. Can't wait for the main course...

  3. The picture of Jack with the tiny carrot is ADORABLE!

  4. Good to hear that you got the emails ok. What a mess for you to have to deal with, but I'm glad everything is working out ok. And no, it didn't mess me up at all! No worries! :)

  5. This looks so yummy.. Love to garden.. Got the beans coming up, squash and zuccini have to get cucumbers......

  6. The darn bunny's got our green beans as well as ate the tops off of the carrots yesterday...:(
    Deanna, I didn't plant zucchini this year but I have an incredible recipe for a zucchini casserole. Let me know when your zucchini's come in and I'll get the stuff to make it and post it!

  7. Yum! Looks delicious! I love being able to go out back and grab some produce! It's the best!
