Six baby maties
Two lemon Cukes-my personal favorite and buddy can I eat the little yummies right off the vine. Scrape the black pokey bits off and rub it on my jeans a bit to brush off the dirt and that baby is gone in sixty seconds-skin and all. Delectable. My favorite vegetable of the season.

There are two places still left in the plot-what shall we put in -I say more Lemon cukes but that'd be overkill !~!
|The flagstones keep the hose from dragging over the babies|
and protect a bit from the wind.
|Baby matie-six varieties this year-mmmmm.|
|Ormond worked all winter to make this 20 by 20 foot plot ready for this planting. Lots of digging and spreading and buying big bags of who-knows-what and filling in the low places and mulching and dragging and planting and soon eating the fruits.|
|Cute little babies will soon be big edible yumminess.|
|Mulching helps keep moisture in |
and birdies out.
I look forward to the same this year with even more to give to the neighbors.
We're going to try to make Kale Chips. Olive oil and kosher salt and an oven, right ?~! Any tips from anyone who has made them at home ?
