It’s nearly the end of August. Our veggies have been growing fruitfully, haven’t they, daddy?
After our French beans and strawberries finished we started getting our tomato ladies. Mummy and daddy tasted them and said they were woofly tasty, tender and yet crisp. Mummy also said the feeling you get when you cut them was very different, too.
As for our Mr Cucumber, we’d been cherishing the plant since we first saw a couple of flowers blooming. Woof….you cannot imagine how excited we were when we first saw Mr little cucumber! He kept growing steadily and strongly, sucking all the nutrition by himself.
After a while, he was chubby enough, but we were still waiting for his prickly skin became smoother.
However, one day, daddy decided that he was ready to be harvested. Mummy gracefully cut the stalk and sliced him.
Woof!! Look at this!! Mr Cucumber was so fresh that the moisture kept coming out. Daddy said it was woofly tasty so mummy offered Silky and me a little.
Oh, my woof! We normally don’t eat cucumber but Mr Cucumber was very tasty and we liked it.
Now, our only cucumber is gone but we still have loooots of tomato ladies and spinach girls,
and we also have these tiny tomato babies, Tesco’s Finest “Kent Temptation”.
I wonder, daddy…..it is nearly September. Do you think they will be mature red tomato ladies?
