We grew our own! Mom set up planters in the front yard, it was all her doing. Now after a few weeks we JUST picked our first one. I can hardly believe it! It made me feel so much like a farmer :) My mom named him "Henry" (I have no clue why, hmm, don't ask) and we had such fun picking him from the vine. Complete with pictures. Then we ate him. And Henry went to cucumber heaven!
The moment of truth!
Delicious with some healthy, nutritious and real celtic sea salt. Contrary to popular belief, salt is good for you. But like with lots of foods it matters what kind or type of salt you're buying. Celtic sea salt is an unrefined, naturally harvested sea salt that is not beached or stripped of any minerals in any way; it has no additives, no chemicals and no preservatives. It is quite the opposite of iodized salt which is very damaging to our health. You can really taste the difference, and your body knows the difference. It's a bit on the pricey side for salt, but nothing bad at all and the cost is worth it for your health. This kind is most perfect for cucumbers.
Cucumbers + salt = love.
