Our First Cucumber and the Doggies

How exciting is that! We harvested our first cucumber at the weekend and it tasted more delicious than any cucumber I've tasted




There are lots of flowers, so hopefully plenty more Cucumbers to follow.



I think we may start harvesting corgettes next week and we have lots of pea pods and tomatoes in the greenhouse.

I've been treated to a new camera, she's a beauty and I couldn't wait to go outside to try her out. Off to the park we went with the dogs. I love to zoom along on my scooter while the dogs run as fast as they can and chase me. I find it so invigorating, and now I can get some photos of the dogs running without it being a large blur...




I think Penny (at the front) has all 4 legs off the ground in the photo below



Imogen was about to roll down this small hill before being covered in a pile of dogs :)



Catching a breath before the walk home



I'm quite excited about my new camera and plan to take lots more photos.

Just before I go, I must show these wonderful photos of some local yarn bombing - brilliant!




Take care

  1. Hello Cheryl, I'm happy for you that you got a new camera; I did too just recently so we're both having lots of fun. Great to see your little puppy dogs having such a good time, and congratulations on your cucumbers and all those lovely veggies still to come. There's nothing like home-grown is there! xoJoy

  6. I have never grown my own cucumbers but a friend that I used to work with used to bring freshly picked ones in for us all whenever she got a glut of them! There is no taste like them. I expect the supermarket ones have been grown for the uniformity of them rather than anything else.

  11. That's great to grow your own produce. I grew some runner beans but when I returned from holiday they had all shrivelled and died as I hadn't got anyone to water them. Lovely photos of the dogs with your new camera. X

  12. Funny how what you call Courgettes here in the US we call Zucchini. How did that happen??? Love the photos and the puppies--how fun!
