Me, too. I have three varieties growing -- Yamato (both male and female flowers are a-buzz with pollinators so they'll be here soon), Picarow (pickling cuke) from seeds I saved last year (yes, I grew one out -- it turned into something that looked like a Spaghetti Squash :shock:) -- pinky sized fruits yesterday so maybe thumb sized now, and Lemon (male flowers only so far).

I want to make a big jar full of whole Lemon cuke pickles. I think that would look interesting. 8)

What are you doing with yours, Wolfie :?:

Cukes, watermelons, zuchini, beans and peas have just germinated for me.

Wow, that's a fat one! I once saw a cucumber that was the size of a large zucchini :shock:!

I myself just harvested my first two average sized ones.

That's a nice one but just wait they can get BIGGER. :shock: Especially those ones that allude you for some time hiding in the foliage on maybe on the other side of the fence.
