Cucumber and Tomato Harvest

This is what I've been waiting for! My first cucumbers and tomatoes were picked today!

Salad Bush cucumbers. By far my favorite cucumber to grow despite the cost of getting the seed for it. This is my third year with the same packet of seed and they had no problem germinating. It's worth the cost. My garden won't be without these tasty cukes.
Sun Gold cherry tomatoes. I've heard a lot of hype about the candylike sweetness of these little guys. I thought they just tasted like....cherry tomatoes....good cherry tomatoes.


  1. Yay on the cucumber harvest!

    *whimper* Please tell me the Sungolds were extra special sweet and delicious. They are the ones I was most looking forward to trying.

  2. I feel terrible saying it since I heard so many great things about them, but I didn't find them super sweet or like candy. They were good though. I'm hoping it is just because they were the first ones and the rest are going to be a dream. I paid shipping just to get these seeds, so I hope the next ones are more special.

    The cucumbers made an awesome cucumber salad though. :)
