Oh my sweet Lord, those Cucumbers keep on coming…

They’re coming faster than I and the neighborhood can use them…this needs a Book on how a town was buried in Cukes…


I know, we’ll open a “Cucumber Spa”…

Maybe we’ll have a “Ms. Cucumber” Pagent!

Maybe we could organize brainstorming session…with people who have brains, it’s either that or market the hat!

And just in time too, here come the Green Beans!

And here’s the best Cucumber Recipe you’ll ever find…**It’s from Sue Radsick, Rodger Radsick’s wife who was kind enough to send a big bowl of it into work with him one day and those guys at Gordon Lumber just loved it! And so have we here at home because she was kind enough to share a great recipe too! Delicious!!  Cool and Sweet it just tastes and smells so fresh, like summertime goodness.

1 Pound Angel Hair Pasta  (broke into 3rd’s and cooked according to package directions)

2 Cups Half & Half creamer ( you can use fat-free if you like)

Prepare Pasta and Cucumbers mix together and set aside. In another bowl pour Marzetti’s Slaw Dressing add Sugar (or Splenda), whisk together then slowly whisk in Dill so it doesn’t clump up. Pour bowl over Pasta and Cucumbers and season with a little salt and pepper and dinner is served.

  1. So this reminds me of a documentary Shawn and I saw on television recently. It was about the “un-schooling movement.” This is where parents take their kids out of school, do not provide homeschooling, and allow their children to learn what they want/need to know by following their own interests on their own time, completely relying on their own initiative. In the segment we watched, a teenage boy (in between wrestling in the yard with his sisters and sleeping on the couch all day), showed the cameraman and host his science project in the basement. It is a complicated set up with tiny plant containers, lights, and a spray bottle of water. He states proudly that he is growing pickles. Shawn and I just looked at each other.
