3rd Thorny Fruit

21 Jan 2009
Overcast 28°C / 82°F

Have harvested another cucumber, and will give this one to my bf’s mum. She loves gardening too, but has difficulty growing fruits (except chillies) as direct sunlight does not enter her apartment. This cucumber is roughly 18 cm long. There are two more growing on the plant. Hopefully they will be ready to be harvested for Chinese New Year reunion dinner.

Awesome! The first few cucumbers off a plant make you feel so accomplished, don’t they? By the 20th or so, the family is less than thrilled with cucumber salad AGAIN. :) Ooooh, I can’t wait for summer.

Thanks! Yes, I’m still feeling excited and accomplished about my cucumbers now. But yeah, I think by the 20th or so my dad will probably be less excited too and no longer measure the cucumbers when they come out. But I can’t imagine getting 20 cucumbers off this smallish plant in a smallish pot. That would be awesome!
