Cucumber + Corn

With her tender skin—whether bumpy or smooth, pleated or pale—crispy cucumber prefers to protect her delicate complexion by growing upward rather than lying on the ground. With his tall stature and regal bearing, corn is especially desirable for this purpose. Cucumber is also sensitive to cold; fortunately, Corn is happy to cuddle. Intertwined together in their warm bed, this pair will flourish all season long.
