I harvested 46 cukes from the two plants in about five weeks.
Tomorrow, Labor Day, we harvest the last of the tomatoes and cukes and pack up for the return to Massachusetts.
Instead of growing squash and cukes , she cultivated things that would feed them all year - potatoes, onions, garlic, beans.
We kept a half dozen eggs and a stick of butter cool along with some tomatoes and cukes in a bucket lowered on a rope into the well.
Tomatoes, eggplant, even bush varieties of cukes can be tucked into a flower garden.
