Homegrown cucumbers

For dinner tonight we had a medley of raw veges. I just could not bring myself to cook the gorgeous, super fresh, just picked veges. So we had cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices and carrot sticks. As well as just dug Jersey Benny potatoes and pork chops straight from our pig. What a lovely vitamin filling dinner.
The cucumber plant in the glasshouse is the only one that is seriously fruiting. The ones in the garden gave me fruit just after Xmas but then because of the colder summer they have not produced since. But they are producing female flowers. So I am diligently picking female flowers from the outside vines and going into the glasshouse and fertilising the male flowers. Look at the fantastic results!!!
