OOOOH! STEP BACK JACK, IT'S THE MONSTER CUCUMBER!
Isabella, our ragdoll was not impressed at all with our 18 inch, 3 1/4 lb. cucumber!! We finally cut it from the vine as it was starting to turn yellow and probably unedible at this point. But it is chilling in the frig as I write and we will cut it later to see what the inside is like. When you pat it, it sounds like the thud on a ripe melon- LOL! It was so much fun to see just how big it would get but it sapped all the strength from the vine and the smaller ones all died out from the very high temps we have been having in SC.
