Our rainy growing season is finally paying off. I feel like this is our thank you from mother nature- these sweet juicy amazing melons we just harvested. And how do we enjoy the very first fruit? Well by cracking it open and having a snack right in the melon patch, almost everything tastes better when eaten in the field!
We grilled up almost an entire shares worth of vegetables the other night when we had family in town. This time I made a cucumber salad to go with it. I scooped out the seeds and let the sliced cucumber sit in salt water for a bit, then poured off the brine and added apple cider vinegar, fresh dill, olive oil, salt & pepper. At the table we added rice and plain yogurt, Shane covered his plate in Sriracha while the rest of us just topped it with some feta cheese , delicious both ways!
