Table Talk » First Garden Harvest
My small kitchen garden is planted with tomatoes and cucumbers. I planted just before a long cold, rainy spell, so my garden took a beating and it's been slow to recover from all the rain and cold weather. Earlier this week I noticed that beautiful orange tinge on a few tomatoes on one of my Oregon Cherry plants. The cucumber plants are covered with flowers and loaded with tiny cucumbers. Last night ,just as we were just about to sit down to dinner (lamb burgers), I decided to go out and see if I could find a cucumber and a few tomatoes to add to our meal. Bingo, I found a 6-inch cucumber and 3 large cherry tomatoes ready for picking. The first veggies from the garden are always the best. Cucumbers that are young and tender and don't need to be peeled! Tomatoes, still warm from the sun. It doesn't get any better than that. I didn't get a picture of the harvest because the lamb burgers were ready and we were too hungry to take the time for a picture. The veggies tasted heavenly. The cuke was crisp and refreshing. The tomatoes were sweet and juicy. Hopefully they were just the beginning of a bountiful harvest.
