Death of a Gherkin

Gherkin -22nd July 2012
As I predicted on 6th July the gherkins and cucumbers have been growing apace. So much so that I was able to pull the first of the gherkins today.

Unfortunately I must however report that it is now no more. A sharp kitchen knife sliced it lengthwise with swift and exact strokes. There was no fightback, just passive resignation. The crisp remains of this once glorious fruit were then deposited between two welcoming slices of lightly buttered bread. Two further deft cuts and the sandwich was ready to be consumed. It was and I am sated. A dry white wine followed.
