It really feels like it has been raining cucumbers over the past week! Not quite a “glut”, but as there are only two of us it really feels like a large harvest. I’m only growing them out the back this year as I had the fence available to place a trellis for the plants to grow up. This worked at first, but all three cucumber plants seem much happier growing up and around the tomatoes as they got larger. I even found a big one that had been hiding on the ground under the pumpkin leaves. I think some pickling may be in order….
