This little guy is amazing. It took awhile to arrive but has been worth the wait. I wasn't sure they would fruit since they seemed to take twice as long as regular cucumbers. As the name suggests - it looks like a lemon but tastes like a cucumber. It has a slightly different taste than a regular cucumber but not by much. A slightly different taste is what I will be looking for Saturday when we start our week long adventure of back yard really, really local eating. We have four types of cucumbers growing. I could make ummmm a four cucumber salad? four kinds of pickles?
It was supposed to be happening already. A friend called to ask if we had starved to death since I hadn't been posting about the experience. Actually, we went to Disney World. Going to Disney World just so happens to be the direct opposite of backyard eating. But my beautiful family lives in Orlando and they needed to see the dirtiest kid in the world. So off we went. Think of this as the Disney Detox. (Starting after our next two days of Thanksgiving feasts of course - Putting our grand total of Thanksgiving feasts at 4 if anyone is counting.)
Our experiment starts Saturday and I will try to post everyday. We have decided to do a solid week and then see if we can keep going indefinitely. Depending on how impossibly hard it is.
Best of all! The new chickens starting laying eggs- and not a second too soon. For that I am eternally grateful.
