Today we picked (and ate) our first graduate of the vegetable patch:  A chunky cucumber.

We had half for lunch, mixed into a chicken salad (left-over roast chicken, dried cranberries, tarragon from the herb patch, and mayo).  The other half will be featured in tonight’s side salad.

The welcome return of the rainy season (in addition to BT and my worm-killing diligence)  seems to have revived the cucumber plants (lots of new growth and flowers).  Hopefully, more cucumbers will follow.  This dude was a good cucumber!
