LikeLike Reply Love it. Those cucumber spines can draw blood! LikeLike Reply They really showed up, didn’t they?!? I never knew to fear cucumbers before starting my own garden. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Do you still really have cucumbers?! Mine were such a failure this year–well, we did get a number of gallons of garlic pickles–before the dreaded beetles came along–but it was ages ago. LikeLike Reply I still have cucumber vines stretching to the heavens, long since disdaining the obelisk I use for them, and climbing the surrounding arbor vitae. They are still flowering, some new ones only and inch long, some gigantic! Literally, they are twice my height. They are awe inspiring. 🙂 LikeLike Reply What’s your secret?! LikeLike Reply No idea. Water them a lot maybe? Put fertilizer down in the spring? Give them something to grow onto? All three? LikeLike Reply My goodness! The shades of green and patterning is marvellous Brenda. A giant’s cucumber!! LikeLike Reply You have to climb the tree to get it! Maybe in Jack n the Beanstalk, it was a cucumber vine all along!! LikeLike Reply What a beautiful vegetable you have grown.

The dill and cucumbers in my garden are quite separate. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Cucs do have spines and they do not go easily. So true! LikeLike Reply I usually brush them off before I harvest, but I can’t when it is so far above my head. Eek!! 🙂 LikeLike Reply Yes the first time I grew them I didn’t know cucs had spines… Ouch LikeLike Reply They do hurt! LikeLike Reply What a cucumber ! LikeLike Reply It is literally 2 feet above my head, clinging to the arbor vitae. And there’s one higher, not quite as big. Some of the flowers are double my height, way up the vine. It’s intimidating with those spines. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Comments welcome! Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
