The First Cucumber of the Year!

For some reason, cucumbers do extremely well in my greenhouse. This is my very first cucumber of the season. Now, you are slightly limited with what you can do with them, but I just love them straight off the plant in big chunks for lunch or in salads. When they really start going, we have a fresh cucumber every other day.
Kids love to watch them grow too and can't wait to try them! This cucumber was particularly juicy, refreshing and sweet. Love them!
Let me know if you have any cucumber recipes. Mr Mean likes to cut them into thin strips and mix them with shredded crab sticks and salad cream. What do you do with yours?
