There is a groundhog devouring our cucumber plants, so we haven't harvest a single one yet. Lots of zucchini, loads of leeks, handfuls of green beans, but not a single cucumber. I'm sad about the lack of cucumbers. They're one of my favorite veggies. Ideally, the fresh ingredients for this recipe could come from your garden. If you don't have a garden, or a large rodent is eating yours, get them from a local farm stand if you can. They'll taste better than the ones at the grocery store.
