Cucumber No.1!

It's here! My first very own home-grown cucumber! Talk about local produce! Couldn't get more local than this!
We were away on holiday for a couple of weeks and this beautiful cucumber was on our balcony waiting for us! I think it needs a few more days to grow a bit more so we haven't tasted it yet. But it looks great! I'll let you know what it was like.

It's amazing how incredibly easy it is to grow your own veg in a container, on a balcony. And although my produce isn't going to feed us through the long Swedish winter, it's a delight to be able to eat your own cucumber No. 1!


  1. So cute! I use to love growing my own tomatoes on my balcony too. It's so satisfying, isn't it?
