What happens when you neglect a garden and its harvest?
Our cucumbers should have been picked a bit a while ages ago! Unfortunately cukes are about all our garden is producing (aside from a few little yellow cherry tomatoes…notice to the lower left). Fortunately they are our FAVE! Even a bit overgrown, these cucumbers on steroids are still divine. I cut one up to snack on this afternoon and enjoyed every bite, though I only ate about half of the giant before placing the rest in the fridge to enjoy with dinner.
We actually do have quite a few little yellow cherry tomatoes that are still green, so I’m anticipating a tomato harvest in my near future. Finally, the herbs (rosemary, oregano, and basil) have made it along with one yellow bell pepper that, after weeks of getting bigger and staying green, is finally taking on a yellow hue. I was beginning to think we accidentally had gotten a green one. Our garden is a semi-success and more importantly a good learning experience for next year’s garden round 2.
