1. Cucumbers are the only thing I have successfully harvested from our garden this year too. Only so far I have only grabbed two. Hope the potatoes turn out for us too. All leafy veggies have been eaten by critters!

  2. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.



  3. They look so yummy. I only just got some cucumber seeds in the ground this weekend at the same time as some cauliflower and broccoli. It said in my zone I can plant through July…so here’s hoping. The community garden tills up the ground at the end of October, so I’m nervous some of my late starts won’t make it in time.

    I’m trying to think what you could grow next year that will thrive in shade…I know mint does well. Our rhubarb used to do good in shade too…

  4. Awesome cucs! We’ve tried to grow cucumbers in our garden for years and never have any success with them. Yet still, every year we plant them and every year they die without producing a single cucumber. Our garden has been finished for months due to the early extreme heat in Texas but we loved having fresh veggies just outside and I’m hoping we’ll have a small Fall garden!

  5. I grew up with a garden in the backyard and would always munch stuff right off the vine while I was running around playing. :) It was the best!

  6. i was recently complaining how very little has ripened yet in my garden, and someone (a veteran veggie grower) told me that this year has been terrible for the plants here in Chicago. We just haven’t had enough sun and warmth. I do have 2 little cukes that are starting to look like real food…can’t wait to taste them!

    Yours are really pretty!:-)

  7. I have cucumbers. Crazy amounts of cucumbers. None are ready for picking yet, but I have at least a dozen plants that have gone CRAZY. I can’t wait to eat mine, too.

  8. We are having a serious veggie garden for the first time and I too can feel so priviliged and prosperous when I go out to harvest dinner.
    What I have found too that since eating this fresh food, I am less craving rubbish. I think this fresh food is far more filling and nutritious than I thought. What a bonus.

  9. You know, I sometimes forget that I have food in the backyard too! Your cukes look amazing.

  10. A friend and I were just talking about home-grown cucumbers this morning. They are sooo yummy. Too bad I kill everything. :o(

  11. Oscar Wilde said, “We are all in the gutter, but only some of us look up and see the cucumbers!” (Or was it “stars?”)

  12. My second-oldest went through an “i don’t eat non-lettuce veggies” phase, but if i put some soy sauce, roasted sesame oil, and sesame seeds on sliced cucmber, she’d somehow eat a whole bowlful.

    I it’s true for most folks that are gardens don’t turn out how we envision them when we’re thumbing through seed catalogs in January, but I’m glad yours is still growing you yummy things for the lunchbox. :)

  13. A new fan is born! Just started exploring your blog and loving it so far…esp activism. Thanks for having and maintaining this…

  14. Hi! We really liked your post and decided to feature it as a part of our weekly mom blog round-up over at KiwiLog. Thanks for the great info!

  15. I love fresh veggies right out of the garden. I just don’t have much luck growing anything myself. This was the first year my cucumber plants didn’t die, but they haven’t grown either. Not sure what I do wrong. I did get 1 precious tomato. A huge step! Maybe next year…

  16. 1.The post is written in very a good manner and it entails many useful information for me. I am happy to find your distinguished way of writing the post. Now you make it easy for me to understand and implement the concept.
