I wish I had a garden. We are currently renting, so I’m not wanting to put in the effort needed to mess with the backyard and try to put in a temporary garden. I tried that last year and after a hailstorm that took out half of my tiny little plants, I just gave up and let it all go to waste. So here I am, gardenless.

But if I had a garden, I would grow tons of tomatoes, cucumbers (especially the little pickling cucumbers), herbs, garlic, onions, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, any berry, salad greens, chives, oh the list goes on. We had a peach tree once, and that was amazing. We have an apple tree but it never flowers. There’s a cherry tree down the street in someone’s front yard and the only thing stopping me from picking every single one is my conscience. Because if my stomach had any say, I’d have buckets of cherries right now.

Luckily, we live near great farmer’s markets, and I have access to all this from local farmers at a decent price. Soon, I’ll be making my own pickles, one of my most favorite things to do. There is nothing like a homemade dill pickle.

Cool As A Cucumber Salad

Another favorite is a cool cucumber salad. Oh hey, look, I just happen to have a recipe here for a cucumber salad. What a coincidence. You know what I didn’t mention above that I’d grow in my garden? Dill. I forgot about dill. You need to dill to make pickles and cucumber salad. Since I don’t have fresh dill, I buy the freeze-dried stuff in the produce department. I also use it to make Paleo Ranch Dressing, so I always have a couple bottles of it on hand. It’s good stuff.

    Crunchy fresh! I added cilantro & a squeeze of lemon. Left peeling on cucumber. Just what I was hoping for, thanks.

    I read one of your other posts saying that you don’t have much creativity for recipe titiles. Well I think this one is great. And I’ve made versions of this salad and it’s a fun and tasty way to use what you have in the crisper. Especially fresh picked cheery tomatoes. thank you for the hard work you do.
