Look at this neat visitor that we had in our garden yesterday! We think it was most likely a “Tiger Swallowtail,” according to our insect book.
That is not a lemon! It’s a cucumber. I planted an heirloom variety this year called Boothby Blonde cucumers, that get kinda fat and yellow. They are absolutely delicious. The flavor is very delicate and sublime. They definitely don’t taste like a supermarket cucumber (which to me, tastes like water with skin).
Finally, a goof. I neglected to check on my zucchini plants for at least 4 days, and look what happened. GIANTIFIC zucchinis. Not even sure if these are edible anymore. I put them in the fridge, and Adam is talking about making a zucchini lasagna where he’ll use slices of these (sliced the long way) instead of lasagna noodles.
