Summertime Goods

On my way home from Yalta (Donetsk oblast), I bought some tomatoes, cucumbers and new potatoes.  Yesterday, at the grocery store I bought a watermelon.

I love summertime in Ukraine.  Even though the hot days have arrived and I don’t have a/c in my apartment, I love preparing these fresh veggies.  I have already made boiled new potatoes with a cucumber/ tomato salad.  Wow, delicious.

Tonight, I just enjoyed some very sweet watermelon.  I bought a watermelon off the street in Yalta last weekend for over 4 griven (50 cents) a kilo.  The watermelon I am enjoying tonight cost less than 3 griven a kilo and I think it may be even better.  Looks like we are going to have a great crop of melons.

Happy eating!
