It's been a good year in the garden for cucumbers! I've eaten one for lunch for the past couple of weeks. Plus we've been harvesting English cucumbers as well, which are more supper oriented. I missed a couple of the small ones, and they are huge. This could be a problem, as cucumbers often die off once they've set a fruit that matures enough to reproduce. The tomatoes are just starting to ripen. The plants are loaded this year. If they ripen enough to harvest, I won't have to purchase many for my canning marathon. The Lemon Boy plant that my son in law gave me is particularly delicious! It has bright yellow tomatoes that are nicely tomato flavoured but not overly acidy. He also gave me a green cherry tomato plant. Those are interesting because they have a strong tomato flavour, but figuring out when they're ripe enough to harvest is interesting. I can't tell by colour, so I'm having to do a gentle squeeze on the fruit to see if they're soft enough.
