First Harvest

Today was exciting because I picked our first cucumbers! I didn't want them to get huge and bitter, so I snatched them up when they were about 7 inches long. All the hard work is paying off!

Our beef heart tomatoes are getting HUGE, but they're still green. Alex and I aren't fond of fried green tomatoes, so it looks like these Goliaths will be staying on the vine until they are ripe. The cayenne peppers are coming right along, but the bell peppers have yet to appear. I just got some salad shears to make homemade salsa with so that the texture is fine, but not soupy. I can't wait! Now, if I could just get a fence up so the rabbits will stay out of my strawberries!
