i have a tiny ill-managed garden in my backyard. this past summer i managed to grow some herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, and cucumbers. everything grew and i harvested throughout the summer, ending in early september. at this point -- because my garden is ill-managed -- i just left the plants there in various stages of "dead." the cucumber plant was particularly brown and sad looking.
so imagine my surprise when a month ago, some new little guys started growing. in fact these look even more delicious than the last few of the summer. how is it that i harvested cucumbers in early november? oh san francisco, your wacky weather never ceases to amaze me.
