Guess what happened this weekend? …
A beautiful green symmetrical cucumber appeared in my garden. Okay , so it didn’t magically appear.
In the beginning of the summer me and my lovely daughter planted a variety of seeds.
The sad thing is that most of my vegetables didn’t survive this year. The culprit… WEEDS.
Okay, so most of it was my fault. Every week I routinely check my garden, I was so excited that these beautiful green plants were sprouting. I could have sworn all my veggies were thriving. Boy was I wrong. All those green plants turnt out to be just plain old weeds.
The only veggies left standing are the tomato and cucumber plant. Which I am alright with. At least something grew.
Looking at the bright side of things I was so excited about my cucumber. Most importantly, I was even more excited about eating it. I looked in my fridge to see what I could come up with. I had tons of watermelon, some cilantro (a staple here in my house) , and an orange. It sounds a bit strange, but when you taste it all the flavors make sense.
You could eat it as a side salad or you can eat it with some chips. Heck you could even top it on some grilled chicken.
p.s you can call me farmer Amy from now on (wink wink)
