I have a recipe for cucumber salad that keeps for months in the fridge or cold room - cucumbers, celery,& peppers if you want in a brine of vinegar,sugar, mustard seed & celery seed that's really good & quick & easy.run4fittness said:At least you have tomatoes! My plants gave up after about a month. Didn't care to replant. My cucumbers are going stark bonkers though! More blooms than you can count, plus the ones that are already growing. They are the straight 8s, but I pick them before they get that large. They are great peeled, sliced thin, and placed in water with sliced lemon, with a bit of grated ginger. Yummy! Make about a gallon with one cucumber, one lemon and 1 teaspoon of ginger. I make it in the morning, put lots of ice in it to get it cold and then drink it through the day.
My Oriental green beens are finally getting beans on them. They are supposed to get 18 inches long, some are almost 10 inches now. Look different. I wanted to try something different this year.
I have dried almost 100 yellow onions and the second batch is ready for eating. The first beets are almost done and the second batch will be ready in a couple of weeks.
And the pepper plants are still laughing at me! Might just give up on them soon, but they look so funny!
Soon as it clears up, it rained all day yesterday again, I want to pick a bunch of my bigger tomatoes when they are dry so I can hopefully beat the slugs to them????
