I seeded my cukes outdoors this year (didn't make a difference since it was so cold and rainy nothing grew until a few weeks ago), and I learned the hard way that cukes don't like it when you transplant them to thin them out . I was so disappointed that I only had 4 plants, only 2 of which were really anything to look at. Well that concern has since faded...
This is just from today, and there are at least 2 or 3 more that will be ready for tomorrow, and I'm the only one in the house that eats cucumber!!! (Hubby doesn't eat things that are green and DS doesn't seem to like cukes, he keeps feeding his to the dogs...)
The funny looking one is because some really brilliant woman decided to stick one of the growing cukes through the fence because then I'd be able to find it easily when I wanted to harvest it... Yeah guess what happened when it got bigger then the fence hole! (Oh well, still delicious, I'm eating it right now!).
I love cukes, but I also go yelled at by the doctor because I'm not putting on enough weight (5 months pregs now) so I can't just eat cucumber all day long!! As much as I really want to!
Does anyone have any really good cucumber recipes? Maybe I can trick these silly boys into eating some cukes!
