This is Mr. Cucumber, trying to keep its cool on a HOT Melbourne day.
It hit 45.1 degrees Celsius today, a record for Victoria!
So I'm glad this morning, I snuck out to the garden and harvested some crops... before this sweltering heat gets to it!
A couple of gherkins (cucumber), a handful of beans, ONE squash. Oh yes,
Anyways, I put them all to good use.
A very home-grown fried rice, teamed with my father-in-law's chives and free range eggs.
Oh, you've gotta love SPAM in fried rice!
