Sunday Garden Blogging

Our organic garden is chugging right along, producing tomatoes, green beans, eggplant and a plethora of crunchy, delicious cucumbers.

As you can see above, however, these cukes don't look like the ones you see in the store. They have been really long, thin and they come in crazy shapes, like the corkscrew variety I'm holding here:

Weird, huh!? Good thing I don't care what they look like, as long as they are tasty.


  1. Devilishly envious of all your good stuff!

  2. Interestingly, there's not all that much you can do with cucumbers. I cut them up on salads, made a cucumber-marinade salad, put up some pickles and even FRIED them at one point! ;-)

    The fried cucumbers were pretty good, kind of like a crispier version of fried zucchini.

  3. Those are the silliest looking cucumbers I've ever seen.

    I ate fried pickles in North Carolina last week and I've gotta' admit I loved them.

  4. Well, like they say, you can fry almost anything and make it taste good! I draw the line at fried cukes, though fried pickles sound good. ;-)
