Anyone here growing a summer garden? What are you growing? I am growing basil and a type of Italian cucumber called tortorello barese, which is native to the Bari area of Southern Italy. Most people have never heard of these cucumbers but they are the best cucumbers I have ever eaten. The weather here had been so cold for so long I didn't think I was going to have them but I started some seedlings late and they are doing well. Since it stays warm here through October, I think they will do OK.
