It has been so hot here we really haven't been doing much of anything apart from staying cool. Yesterday it reached 103 !!! The one good thing about the heat though is that it is ripening all our veggies. This morning Mom and I picked apple cucumbers and tomatoes. Now for those that don't know - these are apple cucumbers but they are only called that because they are round like an apple. Taste wise - they are the same as an ordinary cucumber. Dad says he thinks they actually taste better and he LOVES them. That is an apple cucumber right at the front - it is sort of yellow striped. Mom has grown these for years back home in Australia although the ones she grew back there were more honey dew melon color - but the same size as an apple. Tonight Mom is making a chicken salad with these - eeeerrrmmm mom I will just have the chicken - you can hold the salad part for me.
