Monstrous cucumbers


I have accidentally grown some monster cucumbers. They were supposed to be small pickling cucumbers but I neglected my plot for a few days only to find they had morphed into glowing green Incredible Culkcumbers – same with the marrow at the back. I will still pickle them but will have to slice them up now.

The big question at the moment is, of course: What can I enter into my local produce show at the end of August? Last year I won first prize for my beans (non-runner) but that’s not going to happen this year as my bean plants have been decimated by slugs. However, I might have a chance with my beetroot, potatoes, courgettes and squash. So desperate am I to beat last year’s haul of awards and certificates that I am even tempted to enter the “plate of blackberries” category as I certainly have loads of those.

I have no idea how Dan’s allotment is doing. I will ask him when we next meet to rehearse for our appearance at the Green Man Festival on August 16th.
