Check out this Cuke! Its going bananas!
Cuke update: sadly right after this photo we took off to montreal for the weekend - big rain came and then mega heat 37C without humidity - and that was it for big healthy cuke. He is now fried and weathered cuke. Alas, life is like that sometimes.
This was last friday’s harvest - couple Mountain Princess tomatoes, lettuce, 2 cucumbers, and a handful of potatoes (enough for 2).
Yum Yum Yum.
Gardener’s Observation: The skins on the tomatoes and cukes are pretty tough. My grandpa says this is because they are grown outdoors in the elements as opposed to a greenhouse.
More good bugs and my baby cukes! Our honeybees have lost their marbles for these Sumter Cucumbers. They haven’t taken a ton of interest in the other veggie plants but these cukes are a definite winner. Over the last week there has been a good half dozen bees working away on these yellow flowers. Pollinating and give us little baby cucumbers! :)
