First, I would like to start off by saying that until this past spring, I have never grown a vegetable or herb in my life. That being said, I would like to know what in the world happened to my cucumbers. I purchased the baby plants and brought them home and transplanted them into large pots. I fed and watered them faithfully. Brandon and I checked on them every single day. As I mentioned in an earlier post, we recently moved to North Carolina and had to leave our vegies behind. (I got to bring my herbs though ;D)
Anyway, Brandon went back to Baltimore a few weeks ago and reported that the cucumbers were yellow and looking more like pears than cucumbers. He brought a couple back this past weekend:
What in the world...?
They range from between 4-6 inches. When I peeled them, they smelled like cucumbers and without the skin the even looked like cucumbers. I'm brave (or stupid) so I ate a piece. They even taste like cucumbers. They are slightly sweeter that what I'm used to eating and the seeds portion is a bit saltly like a pickle.
Any ideas? I'm still searching.
