Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
I regret to inform you that the cucumber plants are doing just fine.

I'm guessing about 40 lbs.

If only you knew someone who cooks for a hobby and could come up with many yummy recipes for the strangest vegetables!

Ok, and if only that person still read LJ, she might get my hint! ;-)

As Achaosofkittens said, "so that is why they invented pickles."
Also, he does make cucumber salsa. The problem is just doing something with them.

Pretty! The only thing i know you can make with cucumber is cucumber salad. Tasty, if you like tart things. I wonder if cucumber sorbet might be refreshing.

I've considered dicing them into little cubes and freezing them. I like frozen peas, and I hear that frozen grapes are good too...

Perfect for your Pimm's!

These must be your salad days.

Tomatoes and cucumbers, at least.

You could put them on the eyes of everyone you know. ..

That would be a startling trend: drive-by cucumber facemask!

Maybe... just stop watering them?

I've considered that, but then we'd get weird malformed cucumbers and very unhealthy plants. All or nothing is probably the way to go. Grow 'em or just tear the plants out.

Good point. I'm sorry for your continued cucumber abundance.

so that's where all my cucumbers are! I've got four vines planted, and I get one kirby every 2-3 days. so much for my pickle aspirations this summer! =)

Are you going to be in my neck of the woods this week? I can leave some on the porch for you.
These are a tad large for pickles, though.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm afraid I won't be. I don't go out very often in the summer, trying to avoid that firey ball of suck in the sky. ;-)

I understand that! But honestly, it seems like it's been a better summer than usual with regards to the air-you-can-wear and obscene heat levels.

LOL I still think your cucumber plants are awesome and look forward to seeing you this weekend. :) I think my girls are looking forward to eating your cucumbers. Ok, I am looking forward to that, too. :D Green (Cucumber) Goddess, you!!! ;)
