From a summer garden....


Doesn't a cucumber, fresh from the garden sound good?  Or would you rather have a tomato/

BTW, our furnace is fixed an running!    Isn't it funny how something like that will happen on the worst day it could happen on?  But I wonder how long it would have taken us to notice it if it would have been in the 40's as it was today.

Both, please (with a splash of balsamic reduction, some mozzarella cheese AND fresh basil). YUM

Glad you got your heater fixed. We had to replace ours at the beginning of the fall. THAT'S something we weren't expecting to have to do. :-(

Hope yours puts out some nice heat for a good long time.

I love cucumbers as a juicy snack.

I'm glad your furnace is fixed!

A joy to have nice fresh cucumbers growing in your garden. Tomatoes don't grow well in my garden.

Bill said...

Fresh, ripe on the vine tomatoes please-----Gimme!

Tomato every time. Mind you that cucumber looks good too!

I'll take a tomato over a cucumber any day!

Ann said...

I would like one of each please :) We always had a garden when I was growing up and we would go out and pick tomatoes off the vine and eat them right there.
Glad to hear the furnace is working again.

Hello,

I would rather have a fresh tomato off the vine. I am glad your furnace is working now. Have a great day and a happy new week!

Great capture of this cucumber! This makes me yearn for warmer weather ahead. Glad to hear that your furnace is up and running.

What a beauty! Yes, fresh home ground cucumbers and tomatoes, please. I haven't a green thumb but would love to have a garden and have tried many times. Enjoy your day!

Happy the furnace is fixed! Fresh from the garden is always delicious.

The cucumber looks very good, but I would prefer the tomato.

Thank you, Rose, for what you said in your comment and sharing the Psalm verse with me this morning. I really needed that. You're right, family issues are the ones that really bother us because we care so much.

Oh, the home grown cucumber sounds delicious. Your photo made me smile. My dad had a garden, and he planted cucumbers and tomatoes. There's nothing like a home grown tomato, is there? So glad to hear your furnace is working. Spring will soon be here and you won't need the furnace any more, Rose. Have a sweet day.

I'd take the home-grown tomato every time, but that cucumber certainly looks like a beauty :)

Lovely image, but I'll pass on the cucumber no matter how fresh. I'm more of a junk food junkie. ;-)

Ruth Hiebert said...

Oh yum! A fresh off the vine cucumber is so tasty.

ElaineH said...

That is a fabulous cucumber! It looks delicious! I am glad that your heat is fixed. Yesterday I saw a crocus in bloom in my front yard. Really early.

Glad to hear your furnace is fixed and running.
I'd take one of each, cucumber and tomato.

I was at a fair and a vendor was selling your choice of brine soaked cucumbers or fresh dill pickles. Whichever you chose, he reached into his barrel and grabbed one.

I would never turn down a fresh tomato. But, I love the picture of the cucumber!
