Growing great guns

 It's surprising how fast cucumbers grow. The first one I spotted I gave to next door as I had a cucumber in my fridge already. The next day I found these - petite cukes. I was so glad to be keeping on top of the picking as one can grow in the blink of an eye and it's difficult to  spot them amongst the foliage of the greenhouse. I have to shake the plant to see what is swinging. Something swinging is definitely a cucumber.

I should have shaken the plant yesterday!




  1. I see your growing skills continue!

  2. Yep, I picked another 10 today and will probably pick the same amount tomorrow (hopefully smaller). I still have 4 fairly large ones in the fridge.

    I have the same problem with beans. We picked yesterday and I noticed tonight that there are more ready to be picked.

    I am having trouble keeping up.

    God bless.

  3. It's strange how you look and look and you can't see nothing, then a giant appears from no where.

  4. Great cucumbers, are you going to pickle them?
