Your post reminded me to get out to the garden to check. Seems cucumbers can grow several inches in a day or two.

Have to tell you a story of what happened to me years ago.

LOL


I think it's a known scientific fact that anything in the squash family can grow inches in one day. It's crazy!


Do you ever make pickles with cucumbers? Here's my favorite recipe.


Bread & Butter Refrigerator Pickles


2 large cucumbers sliced thin
1 medium onion sliced thin
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 tsp turmeric

Dissolve vinegar & spices. Add cucumbers and onions. Cover. Microwave on high for seven minutes. Store in clean empty jars in the fridge.
Terrific with a grilled cheese sandwich!

Cucumbers are still coming on strong!


I just made this for a cookout we're having tomorrow. After sampling it, I think it's a keeper.
I doubled the recipe to feed our crowd.
