    Delicious, the cucumber had a ‘fragrant’ taste far nicer than marrow. My husbband hates marrow but was quite happy to eat this and have it again. This was the ‘meat’ part of a dinner with calabrese, beans, cabbage and potatoes. All the veg came from our allotment. Only began in April on what was a grass carpark. The council even waived the rent! One up for the girls – Mum and daughter!
