We had some MAJOR rain in the area on Friday night. There were a few tornadoes even (not close to me, but close enough). But the reason I’m mentioning this is that Friday night when I came home from dinner my container cucumbers were on the ground. I righted them, but some damage has been done. The leaves are looking pretty limp and the flowers have all dried out. I’m hoping I can bring it back. My cucumber plan in the garden is doing a bit better at least!
I thought instead of posting everything this week, I’d show what I started to harvest! Yes, harvest!!!!
I harvested more than one basil leaf. I just had used it right away. I was trying to recreate a strawberry basil drink I’d had earlier in the week. I even used some awesome strawberries from a CSA pick-up I got as some friends are on their honeymoon. My version was not as good, but still fairly tasty. And my other pic:
So, here is the ONE cucumber growing on my “dying” container cucumber. I’m hoping some brothers and sisters join it! Oh, and that radish was delish. I totally ate it right after the pic. I dipped it in a little Earth balance and added some sea salt. ZOMG good
