Garden Fresh Cucumber

Garden Fresh CucumberOur home vegetable garden is really starting to take off!  We had lettuce from there last week, and we just picked our first cucumber!

We are growing our cucumbers on trellises, up off of the ground.  This was the first one that was ready.

One very happy little farmer boy!

Garden Fresh CucumberI love what having a vegetable garden has done for the whole family.  The boyz understand so much more about where food comes from and how it is made than they did just a few years ago.

This week we have about TWENTY cucumbers in various stages of growth.  We are also getting the first of our green beans and can see the zucchinis ripening.  We have baby peppers growing, and a few of our tomato plants have started to flower!  Stay tuned for updates on our little family veggie garden and what we manage to produce!
