Sprinklers. Wading pools. Picnics. Dogs. Playing with Minnow. Hanging out with good friends. The hallmarks of well-spent summer weekends. Just don’t forget the cucumbers…
One day’s worth of cucumbers, after a few days of rain. This picture was from a few weeks back, and fortunately the cucumber flux has eased somewhat, but it’s still difficult to maintain the cucumber mass balance in our house. Anybody want some?
What do you do with so many cucumbers? Make 2 versions of cucumber-tomato salad for a friend’s house-warming party, and bring 2 extra cucumbers as her housewarming gift. Too bad someone had already brought her a box (!) of cucumbers.
Bonus: Minnow ate the first two corn-cobs from the garden. The second one I couldn’t even convince her to cook. She just went after it raw.
