Hi all~

It's been a while, but we got back from Puerto Rico last Wednesday, and I was a bit under the weather.

Now that I'm catching up with things, I thought I'd share some pictures of my first cucumbers that I harvested last Friday.

There is a quarter placed between them for size. The longer one is about 17 inches, and the other 12".

The next 2 pictures show my "nutso" husband "modeling" the cucumbers! [nutz]

Well!!! [Big Grin]

Your husband would have had a really good time with the cukes my neighbor brought me!

She asked me if I wanted "some" cucumbers, and I said "O.K."

She brought me THREE big boxes of them!!! [shocked]
OVER 200!!!
What was I supposed to do with that many cucumbers? [nutz]
But, I never thought about modeling with them at the time! [Big Grin]

Lynne,
I am sorta glad he DIDN'T get any MORE ideas [thinker] of HOW [shocked] to model them, [Embarrassed] [Wink] [Big Grin]

I did that with some zucchini's one year,
we had some fun with them!!! [Wink]

Weezie

P/S What kind are they? Those English kind???

we grow the pickling ones...and let them get big!

Don't forget to be kind to strangers. For some who have
done this have entertained angels without realizing it.

YOU GUYS!!! [Embarrassed] [Frown] [shocked]

I'm waaaaaay too innocent to have had my mind where you 2 went!!! [Big Grin] [Roll Eyes] [Embarrassed]

Don't know what kind of cucumbers they are, Weezie. Just your ordinary, regular, ol' cucumbers that I bought late in the season at HD.

Cindy - what did you ever end up doing with that many? I can't imagine...

[Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin] WEEZIE!!! I first wrote "Well, glad you just put the "Rated PG" pictures on here!", then my better judgement deleted all but the "Well!!!" [Big Grin]

I hate to tell you what I did the cucumbers...
I threw most of them in the garbage! I asked several people if they wanted some, and everyone would say "Sure!", but I guess they wanted me to deliver them in a basket with a ribbon on it!

(Weezie's freaking out right now [shocked] thinking about COMPOST!!!)

Cindy - your "WELL" spoke volumes!!! [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

My husband even laughed at that last night!
My 14 year old daughter COULD NOT BELIEVE
that I would post those pictures of him - and I quote...
"no one will write back to you after you post those -
you are INSANE! OUT OF YOUR MIND! CRAZY!"

ahhhhh... teenagers - they are so easily embarassed!!! [thumb] [Big Grin] [dunno] [Embarrassed]

Well, you can tell her I saw the post right after you posted it, but waited 2 hours to reply! I literally had to RESTRAIN myself to keep from replying right off the bat! [Big Grin]

I can remember when my daughter (now 29) was 14! EVERYTHING that I did embarrassed [Embarrassed] her! Can you imagine having a mom like me when you are a teenager? It must have been pure hell for her!

Your cucumber post made my day! [thumb]

You know what is demented!!!!!...I kept scrolling down thinking "that" pix was "coming up" next!!! [Embarrassed] [nutz] [lala]

Cindy ....I thought the very same thing about Weezie, those cuke's and the compost....I could picture her [tongue] [tongue] [Big Grin]

Oh my aunt makes the best canned buttered pickles. I will have to dig around for the recipe....I haven't tried making them yet....my daughter would kill me with the smell of making them...Hmmmm [thinker] that's a way to get even for that b.day stunt. [devil] ....LOL

I don't know, you girls... this place is getting a little too risque for innocent minds like mine! [shocked] [Embarrassed] [Big Grin]

Maybe my daughter was right, and I shouldn't have posted the pictures after all!

But seriously, I'm glad you're having fun with it - he loves knowing he's the topic of conversation here! [grin] [nutz] [dunno]

Great cucumbers.....I've been bombarded with a ton of them myself......my dad grows them and he has way too many.....too many for us all to eat...it's a shame letting them go to waste, but what can you do? [dunno]
