    Hi Carla!
    Hope the garden is going well. We’re looking to our first weekend in the 100s just as I set my tomato transplants…ugh. Do you have any lemon cuke starters by any chance? Since you’ve been so successful I’d like to try them out. I never have. Lemme know!

    • I think I still have some lemon cucumber seeds. Lemme check when I get home. I’m buying seeds today so if I don’t have any, I’ll pick some up for you. I’m bummed about the heat too. Talk soon!
