    We really appreciate those cukes. We ate one with the steaks, one went to Eagle river and I've got 2 held in reserve for tomorrows lunch.. it's amazing how much better a meal is when you have fresh produce (lettuce, cukes, etc) to include with it. I can make a meal with a nice fresh cuke and a bottle of ranch dressing...

    My peninsula gardens are looking good.
    Well my shaded garden zucchini are not doing so hot but most everything else is.
    But my zucchini in my south facing low tunnels are blossoming along with my winter squash.
    My corn is 8" tall and cabbages and onions are looking great.
    Broccoli looks good but low tunnel broccoli which is under remay fabric is doing lots better than the stuff in my old partially shaded garden.
    Kholrabi has tons of greens and I'm hoping it bulbs up nicely.
    I did finally get my new hillside rhubarb garden planted. 56 plants of 8 different cultivars I started from seed back in January.
    My well pump went kaput while I was on the slope so had to haul drums of water until they could get over and replace it and repair the wires.
    That didn't help things In this weather we are having.
    Funny how we take running water for granted until we don't have any.
