This week we are in charge of garden sitting not one but two of the best gardens in our area. Day One: Plants still appear to be alive- very important criteria in the nanny world. Hopefully they will fare as well in the coming days.
And like all good babysitters everywhere- I helped myself to what was in the fridge... I mean veggie garden. We scored this great mix of tomatoes,which my husband is currently cooking into a marinara sauce, and some awesome petite cucumbers.
We have not had luck growing our own cucumbers. They will sprout, grow and fruit- but the cucumbers always taste bitter. So our cucumber goddess let us in on her secret- Renee's Garden Persian Baby Cucumbers: Green Fingers. I can vouch that I haven't tasted a bitter one yet. They are small but tasty. She shared some seeds with us- so hopefully we can have our own cucumber success soon.
