Taking Advice, or Not!

Okay, I’m learning. I think it was Anna at oceannah.wordpress.com that said pick early and often to encourage more growth, so I discovered the larger of these two cucumbers today, and the other one I had been watching, and I picked them. I think they are supposed to get quite a bit larger, but I didn’t want to take the chance something would happen to them. They are still very prickly.

Meanwhile, I knew these two zucchini were getting out of control, but I didn’t see any point in cutting them off till I was ready to consume them.

This bigger one must have weighed two pounds, and was 12″ long.

It went through my Green Star 1000 twin gear juicer today. I made three quarts of green juice from celery, zucchini, carrots and parsley (and a little raw honey blended in). The parsley was also from my garden.

I’ve been making this juice since 2000 and drink 8 oz. most mornings when I get up. Thanks for reading! – Kaye

    Yum! I love fresh juice; there is nothing else like it.

  2. Ate one cucumber. It was good!

  3. The other zucchini got doused in a good balsamic with a little olive oil and grilled. Yum.

    So now we know one of the secrets to your radiant beauty!! Green juice looks great. For me, the best zukes for eating (rather than juicing) are small and without seeds. Your cukes look terrific!!! Go Kaye.

    • Thank you, Anna, too kind! I am off to a late start today and just having my juice now. I agree about zucchini. The young ones are the best sliced up and put into salad for sure. Those big ones yesterday definitely had seeds.
