I think one of the greatest gifts my father gave me was the love for fresh out of the garden vegetables.  I grew up with huge gardens on our property in NH and so summers meant colanders full of fresh picked tomatoes, armfuls of fresh picked cucumbers, and baseball bat sized zucchinis.  In my mind, nothing beats the crisp cool crunch of a home grown freshly picked cucumber.
