I harvested our first two English Cucumbers from the garden today. I grew them on a tomato cage so that the cucumbers hang down and grow not touching the ground.
The one I planted is English Telegraph Cucumber, and these cucumbers are long and thin and they are delicious. We like them sliced with celery salt or lemon pepper, or sliced thin in plain yogurt with dill, salt and pepper.
Do you grow a favorite type of cucumber or have a recipe to share here? We would love to hear it.
