Welcome Cukes

The long cucumbers in the garden are long alright: 2 feet long and thick with seeds. Now: What to do with 4 of them?

This is the stress of vegetable gardening. Either it doesn't grow--like my zucchini, can you believe it?--or it does grow.

Then there's the stress of the over-supply. I figure it will take 1-2 hours to work some magic on these cukes. They could become pickles, but salsa also solves my tomato and pepper abundance. (Who pays attention to the fact that abundance--of any sort, really--is problematical?)

The Garden Club is having a fund-raiser today at the Welcome Center on the interstate. Coffee and baked goods are welcome, sure, but travelers love fresh fruit and fresh veggies in a plastic cup. Add a sandwich baggie of chips to the cup of salsa and...

Welcome to our green state!
