Grace, I will have to try the tomatoes. We using just do the cucumbers and red onions. But the tomatoes sound good! I have so many green tomatoes that Iím waiting to turn red. Once they do Iíll have to try it.

Yep, they are water suckers for sure! lol!

I'll have to try the Epsom salt water for my cucs... I do lightly sprinkle epsom salt around my tomatoes and roses...

Smoke is crazy bad. I wake up with a headache most days.
Mix a Tablespoon of Epsom salts in a gallon of water the cucumbers love it.
And Cucs need lots of water as you know the are 97% water.

Grace that looks delicious! My cucumbers are slow this year, but my dad shared one of his with us and we had it last night. I like to soak mine in apple cider vinegar. So yummy! I wish I had another one! Enjoy your cucumber.
