Since this is the first year I've planted vegetables, I was very excited when some of them were ripe. The first ones were a bunch of Lemon Cucumbers, that I harvested at a couple of different sizes:
|4 lemon cucumbers, eaten, and made into cucumber water|
The smaller ones were so good I just ate them like an apple! I also made some cucumber water, and pickles (adapted from this recipe here). They're really good right off the vine, but I have found they don't store very well. Even a day later, they get a bit mushy.
The second plant that started ripening was the "black cherry" cherry tomatoes:
|First six cherry tomatoes. All eaten shortly after this picture was taken!|
In the next week, the first watermelon should be ready! I already can't wait... There is also a watermelon-experiment on-going... pictures to come soon!
