Once - within the EU - you were not allowed to sell curved cucumbers.... for some reason... but I think that has changed now.
My advice: pickle them.
I love reading your blog ... it gives me a jolt of happiness each time I visit.Missy *Ü*
wow, you already have yummy veggies and here we are still digging out of the snow. Soooo jealous !!
haha. i love how random your blogs are.
Danish Girl: I rmeber all that about the too bendy bananas...crazy EU rules! Jorge: I planted loads of veg last spring, but then crushed my leg so couldn't harvest any of it!This year I am going try and grow the worlds biggest pumpkin...
Yummy! I could have used one of those when I made sushi rolls yesterday.
I don't know why, but you with this cucumber look like Sherlock Holmes with his pipe (especially the shadow). Cool :-)
Fresh off the vine cukes. Sounds divine. Looks a little naughty, but sounds divine *bg*: ) P
Oh, I'm so jealous. I love fresh cucumbers. You just can't decent ones in Wisconsin in the winter.
your blog is very interesting. We are fans of lost and your character is very good. Greetings fron Argentina.
Look's Yummy!!!!I can't wait til we can start our garden. Here in Wisconsin we still have some snow on the ground.But soon we can get out there and plant!
Why to go, I live in Missouri and got to work the soil yesterday for cukes this summer. "I would gladly pay you Tuesday for a Cuke today." Wimpy to Popeye
LOL - I'm taking it that you didn't grow them in the upside-down tomato thingy, huh? Seriously, I'm jealous - your tomatoes and cucumbers look fantastic. I really need to go to the nursery....and get some herbs and peppers, too...
DanishGirl - that law has changed now, they can be as curvy as you like now. I never really understood that whole thing anyway - nobody paid any attention to it anyway.
There is nothing better than a freshly picked vegetable...yum...I'm jealous!
Good for you for starting a garden! That's something I'd like to do this Spring/Summer...not sure what I can grow in my backyard here in Virginia....
I love the curvy cucumber - it looks like a smiley!!Keep on blogging. Your writing is a hoot!
I'm just jealous that the weather is warm enough for a gardern this time of year! It's still pretty chilly here in NH.
mmm, fresh cucumber and cheese sandwiches, greek salads, tomato and cucumber salads, toasted open faced salmon sammy with tomato, cucumber, mozerella, lemon, and cracked pepper--ooh and maybe a marinated artichoke. My husband works nights, so after I put the four boys in bed on Wednesday nights, I warm up the DVR, put my feet up with some warm herbal tea (and maybe a pastry) and slip into my happy place. Sorry, had to gush, Lost is just SO awesome this season. It's definately one of my favorite seasons yet.
When I lived on the island, I didn't have any luck with my garden-- my tomato plant hatched one tiny little cherry tomato... and it was supposed to be a beefsteak.
Yea lucky you on your garden. Here in North Texas I have had plants inside for weeks, and just yesterday planted them outside. Congrats on your efforts in natural food.
IMO, those are the best cukes, the onces with the thin skin. But, a law against selling crooked or curvey veggies? That's right up there with "No whistling after dark." It's a weird world.
hope you washed that before you bit it off..
Jorge,What kind of cucumbers did you plant? They almost look like the pickliing type!
I love growing cukes. I am so jealous that you can have them now- I have to wait until mid-late summer! (I just planted my seeds) Since you're a cuke guy- try slicing them thickly, put them into a big glass or waterbottle and add water. Your water will taste just like cucumbers and then you can snack on them when you're done!Becky http://thevioletfig.com
How did the great tomato experiment go? Are you still growing both in pots and with the hanging bags?
Don't you peel them first before you eat them? I don't care for the skins unless they're sliced real thin!
ooh, I was just watching Howdini.com for tips on growing an organic garden! Good to know this tip. Do you have deer in Hawaii??? That's my biggest obstacle!
"Patience Cucumber": would make a great name for a band.Looks tasty!
jaja :) I am an admirer of yours, your very good blogI speak Spanish, I live in Uruguay and give you greetings from me and other fans. bye.
I love cucumbers straight from the garden, especially with a salt shaker...lol
Fresh cucumbers straight out of the garden in March...I'm so jealous! I'm looking forward to warmer weather here in New England so I can get started on my garden (which always includes cucumbers) this year. No veggie tastes better than when it's picked right off the vine/plant. Enjoy!
I've never eaten a cucumber with the skin on. Are you really supposed to do that?BTW, very jealous of your green thumb. I can hear the veggies I try to grow laughing at me at night.
I love cucumbers with the skin on, and it's nice to grow them, so they don't have an oily or waxy residue on them, as the ones in the grocery do. I didn't know that people thought the skin was inedible.You've got a green thumb, Jorge!
oooo yum!! That looks delish. If only this winter weather would go away, so we can start planting our garden!
Patience, Cucumber. It's like a line from Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. This totally could be a metaphor for... something.I'm glad the birds have not ravaged your cukes like they did the tomatoes. (Do birds even eat cucumbers?) Keep up the great work in the garden. I'm so impressed!
Something must be wrong with me...but I think that cucumber is kinky.
Giggle - something about that just ain't right.I don't know if you read comments, but I'm dying to know... do you read other people's random blogs or do you just post??Love the blog BTW. I don't comment often, but I read often. Good stuff.
Hey Jorge! I've got a garden too! Its a sq ft garden in my backyard in Dallas. We just started it this last fall. Check out the carrot I pulled up the other day!...http://theotheraaron.blogspot.com/2009/03/carrot1.html
You have the best most interesting blog. Thanks for taking such good care of your fans!
Hold on, did you full on take a bite out of that cucumber? Wasn't that bitter?
