Now that we have a yard, we can grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs. This year we planted a lemon cucumber vine and we’ve had quite the harvest – about 10 lemon cucumbers so far, with 5 more on the way.

I love their color and shape. The skins are fairly thin, the flesh nice and crisp and a bit sweeter than English cucumbers.

We will grow them again next year, but remember to put them up on a trellis or cage so they stay off the ground.
