8/5/19 - Bedtime

Monday, August 05, 2019

I watered the garden this evening. It's humid, so I got sweaty and messy. My clothes were sticking to me, so the shower felt extra special.

I've picked a lot of cucumbers that have been growing through the fence from my neighbors' garden, so I made cucumber salad. I scooped out the seeds, scored the skin with a fork, and added red onion, rice vinegar, and a sugar replacement. It's chilling in the refrigerator and will be ready to eat tomorrow.

I've got a couple of red tomatoes!!! Unfortunately, the squirrels found them before I did. Oh well - I have enough to share.

Sweet dreams everyone!!!

Leslie

    What sweetener do you use, I have tried so many and they never taste good in a salad. I have tried then with cucumber salad and they ruin a good cucumber. And I have had a couple of tomatoes and as a matter of fact I have a few I need to freeze for later use, and NO squirrel here our trees, 99 of them, are mostly all pine and they don't like them and with 2 big dogs, they don't like them either. lol

    Dang those squirrels......my hubby is at war with them because they cause a lot of damage to our maple trees, they are always nesting in them....I used to have a dog that killed them if they had the temerity to descend into our backyard. She just broke their necks. I was the lucky person who got to clean up, no one else would touch, including my hubby.....

    Your salad is a fav here too. I'm craving some sweet corn with tomatoes. That rain storm is heading this way; we'll be getting it in the morning. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thunderstorms predicted for tomorrow morning. The grass is beyond tall again. Ugh! As much as I love to mow, I'm ready for a break.

    Cucumber and tomato salad. Yummy. You didn't say that you added tomatoes, but that's how I fix mine.

    Have a nice evening. emoticon
