Whoohoo, harvested the first lemon cuke of the season the other day! Since the first planting was a failure (other gardeners in the area are having the same problem also, along with a dismal winter squash and pumpkin harvest – which affected us too!!!) we planted another batch. Why the fuss and excitement over a cucumber anyhow? Well, a friend of ours says her summer is not complete unless she’s able to eat these wonderful heirloom cucumber and now we have some to share with her!
ANOTHER PERSON’S JUNK IS…
The house across the street was sold and the new owners were kind enough to allow us to salvage pots and plants before being tossed into the dumpster.
This salvaged terra cotta urn will look lovely with some greenery spilling out – Hmmm, perhaps blue lobelia to resemble water?
