Now THOSE are cucumbers!
This is a photo of part of my garden, year 2006--the summer of plentiful cucumbers, tomatoes, leeks, corn, ... YOU NAME IT! Just look at those cucumber plants. Down in the left corner is one of the baskets of cukes we harvested that day--we had to pick every day and emerged with baskets like that! The leeks just to the right of the cukes are now one of my favorite vegetables to plant. They are amazingly forgiving, and as long as they are started early indoors, they grow a beautiful long white shank here in the short MN summer.
This is one of my favorite garden pictures--it amazes me everytime I look at it. It also makes me sad that I haven't taken more garden pictures. I'm planning on taking LOTS of pics this year! And hopefully the cukes will be even more amazing!
