Still lots of cucumbers hiding under the leaves in my vine filled cold frame. It seems this is a good spot for them. I notice that most other cucumber patches around here have turned brown and stopped producing. I think the frame has sheltered them well in this hot dry summer. I’m starting to get a little mildew on the leaves now, but not too bad.
I can’t even come close to eating them all. I meant to make pickles, and maybe I will soon, but I haven’t had time to do this yet.
But maybe I won’t have extras now, because I’ve discovered a nice way to use them: tiny baby cucumbers in a martini! A perfect way to eat a whole cuke in one bite.
