1 Down — 299 To Go. Cucumbers Have Arrived!

Tonight as I was tying my bean plants to stakes I happened to glance over at the cucumber A-Frame and wonder of wonders there it was…

The first cucumber of 2015.

Last year I picked just over 300 cucumbers from the A-frame. My goal was to have twice that this year, but seeing as I ran out of space and never got around to building another A-frame to put who-knows-where, my expectations have changed.

This year I hope to pick as many if not a few more as last year. I know this is a lot to ask of my cucumber plants, but with a lot of love, a little fertilizer, a lot of sun and water, and a little luck, there is always a chance.

One cucumber in the fridge for Grace and I to split tomorrow, and for this I am — Simply Grateful!
