What can I make with my first English cucumber?!

Birmingham | Jul 8, 2011 01:55 PM

I'm so excited: my first vegetable garden has not been going all that well (think it's my soil mix), but I was surprised this morning to find a 10-inch English cucumber all ready to pick! So funny because I didn't think those plants were doing anything at all and there's this beautiful cucumber hidden by the leaves.

I won't have a chance to go out to buy anything but I've got one smallish tomato that might be a little overripe. Also have lots of onions. And lots of herbs growing outside (those have done well).

Tell me what I can do with this guy.

FWIW: my husband doesn't really like cucumbers, but I told him these babies were supposed to be burpless and seedless and have thin skins that don't need peeling, so he's willing to give them a try.
