The first cucumber of summer

Not a big deal to some people perhaps, but if you are a lover of growing your own produce like me, you’ll know that the first of any crop is a reason to celebrate.

Today we picked our first cucumber of the summer and it was delicious.  I never used to be a fan of cucumbers till (at my wife’s request) I grew some.  The extra flavour of a home grown one was amazing.  There was a crispness with apple hints I never expected.   It was wonderful.

So let me know.  What wonderful delights have you sampled this summer from your garden?  Or if you are from the Northern hemisphere, what winter delights have you found?
