Cucumbers & Diving

Happy Easter Everybody!! Today we got up late and decided to go get wet. Didn't see much super exciting but it was a beautiful day to be out in the water. I was surprised to see some new soft coral growing at one of our dive sites. I also got a decent picture of a Thurdilia Nudibranch for those of you who enjoy them. Afterwards we decided to go and help pick Cucumbers at the Jimenos house. Something happened to our churches water line and we ended up having a huge water bill. To help with the costs (since we don't have an overflowing bank account) we decided to start a farm and grow cucumbers. The things are growing like crazy. There were 4 rows a couple hundred hards long. They have to pick them 3 times a week. Today we ended up picking around 400 Lbs of the things. Yikes!!! They actually taste better than the imported US ones. Anyway, enjoy the pics!!

I think think the cat in the box trick was good - and the nudi - braches are beautiful - and the cucucmbers what can I say? Bring that farmer to NE!

Today is our first day of sunshine now the farmers are impatiently waiting to get their mega ton tractors into the fields to plant corn!

But cucumbers are my favorite!
Love aunt Connie
