  1. Chilled Cucumber Soup looks so delicious. I love buttermilk, so this is probably right up my alley. I like to chop up cucumbers and add them to my tuna salads, give it a nice crispness to it.

    • The cucumber soup tastes as great as it looks! Cucumber is a very useful vegetables, yet is very underrated and under-used in my opinion. I like adding cucumbers to many things, including sandwiches. It gives a sandwich a fresh, crisp zing to it.

      Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the recipe.

  3. Your garden is beautiful!  I love how neat it is.  That's something I need to learn.  That scarecrow cracks me up!

  4. The scarecrow grabs you and also made me laugh, I love it. I heard using those tin pans are great to keep deer and other critters away. Your covered beds are exactly what I did in May here due to frost only your wire is much better than the hoops i used but they served their purpose. Beautiful thanks for sharing.
