Sad though, seeing our garden filled with weeds, I mean green cover crop, instead of cukes. The bright side of that equation is our little Farmers Market sponsored by the Stewards of The Land. Each week I scoop up the really good stuff at the end of the morning. I come home with very fresh VERY LOCAL produce, all chemical free and the other farmers have less unsold produce to take home.
Last week, I let my 3 Gk's do the shopping. Each picked the veggies or fruit they wanted and when it came time to eat it for supper all were willing to at least try the selections since the veggies were theirs.
Snap peas were a big hit. Sweet and beautiful they also served as a wonderful play item. Not exactly Don Corleone in The God Father but very close

In addition to peas there were green beans, cabbage and mulberries. The berries were wonderful with a little bit of sugar and fresh raw cream. Tonight I plan to puree the leftover mulberries and use them for soap coloring. I'll either get a fantastic purple blue or a dark grey or if I am really lucky, a mediocre brown. Anyway, its worth a try.
