I started cucumber seedlings inside, but they did not survive the move outside thanks to whatever ate them. I bought some seedlings at a local store and they started out very slow then exploded overnight. Now they are growing very well… And by growing very well I mean they are trying to take over the garden.
My Cucumber Bush:
The cucumbers are HUGE. We were impressed when the leaves were the size of our hands. Now that are bigger than BeBop’s head.
We’ve picked at least one, sometime two or three every day for the past two weeks. I’ve given them away to all our neighbors and we’ve eaten several ourselves. They are sweeter than I expected.
BeBop’s reaction to the first cucumber we picked. I think if he had a thought bubble it would say, “What exactly am I supposed to do with this?’

My hand (about 6 inches) next to the cucumbers to give you an idea how big these suckers are.
And of course BeBop wanted to take the same picture that Mom did.
