Early this summer, late spring actually, I potted up two tomato plants, a cucumber plant and a few herbs. The herbs flourished, but the tomato and cucumber plants just seemed to green up, flower, grow higher and nothing else. I was frustrated, questioning what I was doing wrong and wondered if gardening just wasn't my thing... until the past couple weeks. My grape tomato decided to start growing lots of green little babies, the early girl while not early is finally producing BLT worthy fruit and my cucumber seemed to grow three overnight.
This is what I picked today when I got home - my first little harvest of the summer. And can I tell you how yummy the cucumber was? Seriously I don't think I have ever eaten one almost straight off the vine. It was so crunchy fresh. I hope the plant continues to flourish because I am thinking I might have to try and make some pickles.
