Sunflowers and cucumbers

I have a sunflower at last! One of the flowers opened up in the rain today. It was one of the smaller, sickly-looking plants so I was not expecting to get a flower out of it at all but here it is with a bee hard at work. It’s lovely.


We also picked our first cucumber today. I’ve never grown cucumbers before but it was surprisingly easy. I couldn’t think of how to take a selfie with this cucumber without people getting the wrong idea – maybe it’s just me but cucumbers look like giant penises. So I added a spoon to the photo instead.


And then we chopped it up and ate it!
