From our Garden

I just had to share this huge cucumber that came from our garden.  It made for the perfect food vessel.  This year we planted our garden with just a few things.
We have 5 tomato plants, 6 cucumber plants, 3 pepper plants, radishes, and 6 different types of herbs.  Four of the herbs we planted are perennial.  We also had some plants pop up from last years garden.  The cucumber we planted this year were the English Type.  The one in front of the huge one is the green English and the huge one is the While English.  This cucumber was 26 1/2 inches long, 12 1/2 inches around and weighed 7 1/2 lbs.  Can you imagine??  So when we cut it open it had a large hole in the center (I think that was because it was way over ready)  So I thought that would make a perfect place to put some food.  :)
Here is it stuffed.
I just made some chicken salad and put it in the center then when I cut it i had a piece of cuc with every bite.  I could also have cut it length wise and filled it that way, but this way it fit on the plate just right.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to Do All the things You Love.
