And we’ve given up trying to stop her. I figure, there are worse things a dog could eat. And they don’t seem to upset her tummy. As a matter of fact she looks great and she has so much energy.
I grow the cucumbers up a trellis in my small space vegetable garden, which works great, however this season, I couldn’t get some of the vines to climb. So, I have some crawling on the ground and some going up the trellis and over the fence. The climbing ones are safe.
Last night I made my favorite marinated cucumbers. After peeling about half of the skins off to give a little visual interest, I sliced them on my mandolin (almost paper thin) and salted them to draw the water out. I added about half of a sliced onion.
Half an hour later, I drained them. I whisked together a dressing of apple cider vinegar, Splenda, a little olive oil, and pepper. They are marinating as I write this.
I can’t get enough of them this time of year.
