Last summer, our neighbors gave us some of the extra cucumbers from their garden. They were incredibly delicious and far more so than the wax-covered ones you get at the grocery. I guess this is true of most all fruits and veggies, but anyways I made myself a mental note at the time to remember to try and plant some cucumbers this year. So I went for it about 2 weeks ago and BY GOLLY they have sprouted!!!! If I seem way too excited about this it’s because I’ve never really grown anything or kept a plant alive for more than about a week. I’m really better at remembering to care for things that bark, meow, or otherwise push their food bowls across the kitchen floor at me every night as a reminder to feed and tend to them. Now I have turned into an over anxious gardener and kinda feel the need to go check on them another time today. I really hope they keep on going and if I get to eat even one cucumber from the backyard this year I’ll call it a success.
(Those other few pots in the background are my hot pepper starters. hopefully my hot peppers that is. Come on peppers!! Their package said 21 days to sprout though, so I’ll just keep waiting)
