It appears cucumbers inflate the same way balloon animal balloons do.

Bet you can't make a balloon dog out of one!

is it just me, or does that second photo contain a shadow on the fence in the background that's roughly shaped like the continental United States?

Beena said...

Ever since the hatch blew, the vegetables on "the island" didn't seem to grow properly, and would frequently look odd...

Erin said...

Why do a get the feeling that cuke is about to explode?

jada said...

Jorge, I really admire your green thumb. You take so much time setting up the environment so that your garden will thrive. Good job. We can't seem to grow much of anything here. (central Illinois) Our garden is also where a house use to sit and it seems to just not want to oblige us with produce.

my gosh! they are huuuugeeeeeeeee

Eugen Caitaz said...

You're watched Shrek? There, Shrek with Fiona inflate animals too!

Tia said...

I just collected my first harvest! Check it out!

Those cukes are so oddly shaped. Weird. But they are probably still tasty...homegrown always are! I'll be lucky to get any tomatoes this year. They aren't doing so hot. :-(

Lynn Faruque said...

I so admire your green thumb~~~~

Balloon animals never looked so delicious.

Tactless Wonder said...

They deflate the same way when you keep them in the fridge too long...I wish I didn't know this.

Lindsay Blake said...

Wow, you're cucumbers are even scarier than mine. Although, I found one in the back last week that looked like the big yellow one you have when you returned from your trip.

Unknown said...

mine are doing the same thing here in austin...crazy, but your's look like they'll be tasty in a salad, mine are very stunted right now due to the hot hot hot summer we are having and no rain... you can always slice them and eat with slices of fresh cheddar cheese, my daughter's favorite snack..;)

Tales of Whimsy said...

Tooo funny! Who knew? You've taught me something new.

Go Green!

Deb said...

I bet they taste very yummy!

teri said...

Uh.....don't they grow on the ground like zucchini? And, maybe they grow like that because the tops are closer to the sun? Or, maybe I just don't know cucumbers. Love them. Don't know anything about growing them. Maybe they need those sun lights for folks with seasonal affective disorder underneath them?

Heard you and Michael Emerson are going to be at Comic Con! Wish so much I could go! Tell Michael he has a fan who loves your blog and thinks he's the sexiest man on the planet. God bless, hope you have a safe trip!

Hey, totally off-topic, my kids and I saw your Hawaii library commercial over the weekend. It was very cool of you to do that. My daughter is your biggest fan!

Love the cucumbers! I wish our backyard was bigger than a postage stamp so we could plant something, too....Your side of the island is probably better for planting, though - more rain...

James Hernandez said...


Not that I have a prurient mind or anything like that, but doesn't that sort of look like a sex toy. Not that I would know anything about that! Just my two cents!

Lyn said...

I'm a little worried about James...


Freud would love your blog.

moon said...

The squeaking...the godawful SQUEEEEEEEEEAKING! How can you get any sleep?

Dan'l said...

Quick! it's time for an experiment. Get some rubber bands and see if you can make an cucumber-animal.

I saw your Library commercial just now, AWESOME!.

yellowdoggranny said...

Rayburn Family said...

I just learned last year that this happens when the flower isn't evenly pollenated. Crazy huh? So if you want perfect cukes you much get out there with your little paintbrush and start pollenating...yeah right. :-)

Aggie said...

I read about the longest cucumber and thought of you. I've been enjoying your site for a while now, but this is my first comment. Your observations and easy humor make for great reads, independent of the fact that you are someone I see on my television.

I was thinking of looking up some of them newspaper websites, but am glad I came here instead. Although glad is not quite the right word… let me just say I needed this after the incessant chatter in the media, and am grateful to you for articulating something many of us are feeling - even from distant shores.

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.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"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 clothing line, Bale was the Head Designer at Von Dutch Originals, which marketed the imagery of Kenny Howard. Don ed hardy, commented, As demand for my artwork continues to skyrocket, I felt it was ed hardy clothing time to take on a partner that could help me manage the demand and opportunities for the ed hardy 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.
