we've pretty much had cucumbers exploding from our ears these past few weeks. in fact. if you showed up to the garage sale AND expressed interest in gardening, plants, composting and/or cucumbers ... you may have been forced to take a few with you when you left.
the ladies that expressed interest in my red and green tomatoes, though? totally had to pay fifty cents ... because i'd not yet had the opportunity to eat one.
but cucumbers? ALL YOURS.
and we've been eating them quite a bit lately. stella likes them with ranch. cora likes them on her sandwiches. finn avoids them.
but all of us like them this way.
in fact? at dinner the other night? we ate a total of 2 cucumbers just.like.this.
(sharing my grandma's ancient cucumber secrets with y'all. you can thank me later.)
cut up your cucumbers ... we've been blessed with skinny long cucumbers this year. (my favorite). i'm fairly certain that that has to do with the type that i planted ... but i have no idea. we cut them up variety pack style. 1. skinny slices. 2. fat slices. 3. half peeled. (which makes them have a stripey wonderful pattern. obviously my favorite.) 4. and full peeled.
and then? take this poor boy to the splash pad that you mentioned before actually starting the refrigerator pickles.
summertime. consists of refrigerator pickles and water parks. i don't want it to ever end.
