First Cucumber

We harvested our first cucumber from the hanging basket plant today. It's not huge, but looks very cool as far as cucumbers go. In all probability, it would have grown larger but I was afraid that, if I let it go much longer, it would either get bitter or the rest of the plant would quit producing. Truthfully I was a bit impatient as well. So, I picked it early this morning. I'll let you all know how it tastes.

John wants to slice it up and eat it "as-is" it tonight, I was kinda thinking tacos or a refreshing cucumber salsa, any other ideas?

I bet we will go with his plan in the end, after all it is his first! :) But now the concept of homegrown cucumbers got me thinking about different recipies - what is your favorite dish that involves cucmber?

Congrats to you!

You are better than me in waiting to eat it. I would have it gone before you could write a blog post about it. LOL

Hope it tastes wonderful.
