I am as proud as a peacock, this morning I harvested my very first homegrown cucumbers ! 3 mini Danito and 2 normal sized. Immediately I had to take a huge bite, it was very crunchy and very watery with a sweet flavor. Delish ! I am so pleased with my first attempt as I was a bit worried they would be difficult to grow, but it has been a willing plant. We planted only two plants, but they have a lot of yellow flowers, so it looks like we will be harvesting plenty in the following weeks. I am looking forward to making crispy barbecued salmon with cucumber yoghurt or other delicious treats.

Our broad beans are doing well also. Actually it is a beautiful plant. I did not expect that at all, tall and lean with wonderful scented white and purple flowers. I will update as soon as I see a change. Have you harvested anything from your garden yet ?
