We love cucumbers…

Eat then 365 days a year here in Turkey
part of our national diet I guess you could say.

I always like to grow them in the garden
Can’t beat the ultra-fresh taste of home-grown.

  1. No sandwich is complete without cucumber. It’s also yummy chopped up in yoghurt as a mouth-cooler when eating spicy food.

    Some horrid blight got all of our cucumbers, tomatoes, and aubergines this year. Any tips on how to prevent this happening again, would be gratefully received.

    Me too! I love cucumbers, the Persian ones. I have one, or two (or three!) every morning.

    We loved having cucumbers every day in Turkey, especially at breakfast with delicious tomatoes and the white cheese!
