When I think of summer I always think of the smell and taste of a fresh garden cucumber. So yummy and so unlike the cucumbers you can get from the grocery store the rest of the year!
Potatoes are another long keeper that grows well in our area. This year we are trying sweet potatoes for the first time too.
Cabbage is easy to grow as long as you don’t let the worms get to it. Cabbage salads are always so fresh and crisp tasting!
