I am not sure how big the World's Largest Cucumber might be,
but I think I may be headed in that direction with this gem...
Every day I am harvesting 5 to 10 cucumbers from this box...
They just keep coming and coming.
They have for more than 6 weeks now.
Last summer my cucumber vines died from a fungus.
We were unable to pick a single cuke.
This year they are mega-prolific!
And this big boy is the largest of all.
I don't have the heart to pick him now.
I know that at this point he will taste bitter,
so now we will just see how big he gets.
My hand measures 8 inches...so this
big boy is about 18 inches long.
I'll keep you posted on how big he ultimately grows.
This is the first year for our pear tree,
and miraculously, it is loaded with pears....
beautiful, ripening pears....
This year's apple harvest looks promising as well.
Maintaining an orchard organically is a bit unpredictable.
Usually the fruit tastes wonderful, but looks ugly.
This year it just might look as good as it tastes!
