Summer has officially arrived in Chicago and those little cucumber plants I planted a while back with the help of Nature’s Care natural potting soil have harvested! I feel like a regular old farmer Joe eating plants from my own garden. Harlow's not usually a vegetable kind of guy but even he enjoyed them.
I thought the cucumbers were ready earlier than expected, but that's probably because they were mostly grown inside. Or then again that could just be the power of Nature’s Care soil.
Like I said I would, I chose to make one of my favorite summer meals with the cucumbers, a light tzatziki sauce served with pita chips.
Red Wine Vinegar
Salt & Pepper to taste
Sometimes when I want to turn this into more of a meal I'll actually add some shredded chicken and serve inside pita pockets. It's delicious either way!
This was my first experience growing my own vegetables and thanks to Nature’s Care potting soil, it was definitely a good one! Their new product with its natural formula is truly perfect for edible gardening!
