Seen Bigger

I've finally harvested my first cucumbers. 
They came out a little small but... 
(Insert suggestive cucumber humor here.)
"C'est ce qu'elle a dit."

If you pickled it, there would be a lot more suggestive jokes I could make.(!)

Chuck Power said...

Didn't anyone ever tell you? It's not the number of your cucumber. It's the crudity of your crudite.

Wow. Sorry man. That was lame.

Thomas said...

"C'est ce qu'elle a dit" if you allow me to correct you ;)
A big hello from France!

Julie said...

Good things come in small packages!

Those still look delicious. Perfect salad size. Also the small ones good for making cucumber and cheese sandwiches. My favorite! So yummy. :)

They look delicious!!!

Hey man, I see you finally put your address on here... do you need some more paper for your disgusting bin?!?!?!?
Just kidding...... :D
I'll write to you... you're great!

Robbi said...

But you know what they say~

It is not the size of the prize!

Congrat's on your harvest!!!!

Unknown said...

Great cuke! You guys are too funny!

redelf said...

Its not the size, its how it tastes.

Tasha Who? said...

It's how you toss the salad!

*drops mic and walks out sideways*

electrictree said...

Rest assured that the size of your cucumber, in no way shape or form, effects my opinion on the status of your manliness. It's a perfectly lovely cucumber.
Of course, if you had quit playing with it and left it on the vine longer it might have gotten bigger...

Hi Jorge,

My name is Antonio, i'm from Itly and for a week since march,7 to march,13 i'm in honolulu for tha SAC ACM 2009 conference.
I'm a software engeneer and i'm employed as researcher in the Sant'Anna school of advanced study, in Pisa, Italy (do you know the sprain tower in Pisa? it is very famous)
So, i know that probably you are not interested to this, sure, but for me is the (i think) only possibility to visit the set of Lost, even for 5 minutes.
And is a fortune for me that the conference is at Honolulu.
I can visit the set of Lost or it is impossible?
Thanks in advance.

If you want you can send me the reply to antonioromano@interfree.it

Cucumber? Looks more like a pickle!

ArtforLife42 said...

I love growing my own food, except instead of chemical enhancement, i get an extra side of bugs.
I read back on one of your blogs that you enjoy drawings of yourself. Well, I;m working on a project for my friend's birthday drawing a lot of the cast of LOST...so if you would like one let me know and I'll mail it. :)

Tara said...

I grew white cucumbers in my vegie patch and they got bigger than that. You have to water them quite alot, because they are mostly water... was it yummy?

C said...

Those look like the ones I grew this past summer (I live in upstate NY so my garden is like an 8 day event). They were so knobby and pinchy. Worthless. I'll grow more zucchini instead.

Jules said...

Time to play 'find the cucumber on Jorge'!!!

Erica said...

Size doesn't matter! :o) You could make a pickle!

Jodi said...

I'm actually quite impressed. I can't harvest anything. LOL!

nomad said...

virgin no more? lots of dimples on that bad boy.hey they say a little prick never hurts.;) never had a lady turn that down. god makes things for women that don't need batterys,lol. a lttle lettuce and vin,salt and pepper or some creamy ranch on it. yum! enjoy. lol this was fun :)

Please Type Legibly said...

It might have been bigger if you'd treated it better, Jorge....c'est qu'elle a dit...

Ruby Zee said...

It's a fabulous cuke, well done! We always had a little garden when we were kids. The carrots always fooled us because the tops would get so big and the carrot was teeny. We'd pull them out, then plug them back in the ground to grow more. Legal limit was 2 inches. Best darned carrots I ever had.

New Yorker wannabes said...

At least are they tasty? I picture them in a greek salad...now here is the recipe

"tomatoes, (your) cucumbers, olive oil, olives, oregano, salt, feta cheece. you cut the vegetables in small pieces, add salt, oregano, olive oil (if you want olives) and you put large pieces of greek feta cheese on top. Add some freshly baked bread and..."

Bonne appetite!!

Summer said...

Man, you can grow some mean ass looking cukes! Congrats on your harvest!

llquadro said...

Stopping by for my daily look at the blog..... just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your interview with the ODI last week! You're such a good sport to give so much of your time to us fans! REALLY enjoyed your scenes from "The Lie".... great job!
Keep up the good work! LOVE the blog! :)

Evonne said...

C'mon, guys... Size DOES matter.
There IS a such thing as too big...

The Engineering Bureau said...

When I was a kid on Long Island and my parents had an area of the back yard dedicated to tomatoes and cucumbers and the "cukes" always looked like that. Actually last time I was at Canter's the pickles were that size..Now I am wondering if there are different types of cucumbers that grow to ripeness at different sizes...

@J said...

Tonight's episode needed more Hurley!

Alec said...

What matters is not the size, dear.

What matters is how you use it. ;)

littlepikl said...

Ok i know this is way off the topic but...... You are my favorite character in lost. Any ways the cucumber looks great. Ok I still can't get over that you have a blog that i can visit.-your fan piklz

ValMo said...

I definitely giggled at this.

Shohom67 said...

Better then I could do.

Char said...

My cukes always curl on me. I think it's a pollination problem, but I feel weird about going out with a feather duster and pollinating them myself. Besides, that's what they pay the bees for, right? So I suppose it's not a pollination problem, it's a lazy bee problem.

Becky said...

It doesn't matter how small it is, it's the taste that matters...and there is just nothing like the taste of fresh cucumber! I love to slice mine in a glass of water. The water tastes yummy and the cukes never lose their crunchiness, so you can eat them when your done drinking!


Rachie said...

"C'est ce qu'elle a dit!" **snort!** I tell you, that joke never gets old...

Fawesome. So stoked I found my way to your blog!

Line said...

Maybe it´s a Baby cucumber?

Momof4 said...

Had to Google it. :-)

Otherwise I was going to say, I don't speak French. Where's Shannon? She can translate it.


that's what she said

Kbunt said...

Wow, you garden and use coupons!! Great blog! Stumbled upon it from Refund Cents. Thanks for being such a down to earth guy. :)

What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued. Italian designres producing tennis rackets? How fashion forward of thstrong. I love it. head microgel is style and preformance at cheap tennis racquets best. Haute couture meets the hard courts.

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.

"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.

In 1981, ed hardy and his wife formed

Hardy Marks Publications. In 2004, Christian Bale licensed the rights to

produce the high-end Ed Hardy UK line, which is based on Hardy's

imagery. Prior to the ed hardy

line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch

Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed

, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to

skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy

time to take on a partner that could help me manage

the demand and opportunities for the ed

T-shirts name. Iconix is at the forefront of brand

management and clearly has the capabilities to dramatically grow the Ed

Hardy UK business. I'm thrilled to have them as a partner. Cheap Ed

Hardy are located in everywhere. We also believe that by owning the brand

alongside ed hardy clothing, the founder,

there will be opportunities to further leverage his iconic name along with his

new artwork. Largest selection of Ed Hardy T-Shirts and Ed Hardy here.
