Cool Cucumbers

I purchased a Champion juicer a few months ago to replace my old juicer of another name.  I finally had a moment to read through the booklet and try it out.  We have a lot of cucumbers from the garden and so I wanted to make cucumber juice, so I did.

The color is absolutely beautiful!!!  
It also tasted fabulous....
So... I will be drinking lots of this juice for the next couple of weeks.
Its also very good for you which makes it even better.

And on a side-note....How did I live before without a Champion juicer :) 
 What a difference a good juicer makes.

Green Thumb Gert

Here is the first watermelon we've picked from our garden.  It is huge, 20 1/2 inches long and 32 inches around the middle.  I hope it tastes as good as it looks.  We'll cut into it on Sunday when we have family over for dinner.  We have about 20 more in the garden and about 30 cantaloupes.  The high heat temperatures this year have been great for growing these sun loving fruits.  

I'll pick some cantaloupes this weekend and make some "Cantaloupe Ice".  Yummmmm, and very refreshing.
