Well here it is good looking people, the long awaited for cucumber that I have been going on about since Friday. This is the second of two exciting developments in the backyard.
The little treasure came as one of those wonderful surprises, you know when you are searching through your veggie patch looking for something when all of a sudden you spot the prize you didn't even know was there?
In my case we were on a caterpillar rampage. I line the children up, give them a cup each, and away we go, hunting down the veggie munching critters mercilessly. I was in the middle of the pumpkin patch with my eye on a lovely fat green caterpillar, when all of a sudden the leaves parted and I caught sight of the most beautiful thing in the vegetable world: something that I hadn't killed.
I think we'll have it for afternoon tea on buttered bread :)
