Erik had declared he is the king of cucumber gardening. This was picked this morning from the garden. Our soil has been kind to the cucs. Sadly, our zucchinis fell pray to the mildew, and we ripped out the plants and replaced them with new seedlings. Hopefully a late season harvest will ensue. Tomatoes, green beans, and basil have done well also. The plan is to shift space from flowering plants over to vegetable and fruiting plants in the coming year.
