Seems like no matter how hard I look, there’s either a zucchini or a cucumber hiding under some foliage somewhere that sneaks past my attention. Sometimes I’m certain that the vegetables have somehow acquired self-awareness when I wasn’t looking and it is their goal to take over the planet, starting with my back yard. I must continue to fight the good fight and consume as many as possible … for the good of humanity.
I check every single day now, but even so, things slip by. This cucumber is about a foot long and probably 4-5 inches in diameter, but fortunately I found it under some leaves before it reached a size that gets beyond the tender and tasty limitations for cukes. It’s going to make a terrific bunch of cucumber salad tonight! 🙂
Edit – – I decided to go all out and make bread and butter pickles with this cucumber. It made three jars worth and smells wonderful. The whole house smells like pickles! Love it … can’t wait to eat some tomorrow.
