I was out checking on the cucumbers last week and noticed that they were blooming, they were. I’m amazed by how fast things grow in the summer. I guess that’s good thing or us northern gardeners would never be able to eat summer squash, cucumbers or tomatoes. I can hardly wait to start harvesting cucumbers and pickle them. I’m especially excited to try making cornichons with the Fin de Meaux. (see this post for a description of the varieties of cucumbers I’m growing this season).
This is what the cucumbers looked like on May 30 when I seeded them:

The race is on to see if the cucumbers come ripe before I go on vacation. I’m hoping to have all kinds of pickles in the pantry for winter eating!
