Something to crow about.
I’m trying to contain my excitement, but what the hell. I HAVE A CUCUMBER! This adorable cuke is the first vegetable to appear in my garden, and I think it’s quite impressive.
Too bad I don’t have a fancy A-frame trellis, because the vines already are outgrowing their support. These cucumbers are Japanese soyu, a sweet Asian variety for eating or cooking. Every yellow flower turns into a cucumber, and once the veggies form, they double in size every two days.
