One rogue cucumber

Just a few days without watching the garden and all crazy happened.

So this is the current garden.  There are volumes of what could be written about the amount of tomatoes we have and are eating at. every. single. meal.  But this is a story about the cucumber plant, the single, only one plant cucumber.

The cucumber has now grown over my pepper plant and some strawberries.  There are hundreds of little cucumbers.  They don’t seem to be growing.

Yesterday when I was watering I happened to notice one in the leaves.  It was bigger and I thought “Oh good they are starting to grow” all of the others are still small, like the one in front of this what turned out to be a monster of a cucumber.

When all the others are an inch to maybe two inches long and barely the diameter of a pencil, this rogue cucumber is over a FOOT long.  When did this happen, how did it happen and a general WTF!

    Tee hee hee! That is so funny. It usually happens with zucchini with us. (since John doesn’t get along with cukes, we don’t plant them) Looks like you might be able to make lots of pickles with all those babies. Your garden looks fabulous!
