First Cucumber of the Season

.

Retired just over a year, my partner is excited to dig into vegetable gardening (pun definitely intended). At least I have some help this season.

Seeing the premier cucumber paraded in, I couldn’t resist taking a picture. My dirty mind saw beyond the dining potential.

I Know, Right? Cliché
But Makes My Mouth Water

Eyes rolling, my partner promptly made cucumber salad with a nice rice vinegar dressing. Guess what I’m having with lunch?

    1. Yes! Thank you. I harvested four more yesterday plus some radishes and sugar snap peas. Now I'm looking forward to garden fresh tomatoes. Good times.
