DIY: Vegetable garden July update

While we were gone for 9 days on vacation, our garden saw lots of sun and rain which the cucumbers took full advantage of and began their march towards total domination.

Here's what the garden looked like when we got back:

Before we left, we made sure to harvest everything and give them to friends.  However when we got back, B went out and came back with...

15 cucumbers!

Unfortunately they were gigantic and too old with many seeds.  Here's a side by side comparison with a ball point pen.

I believe our garden adventures are about over for the season.  We've had some triumphs and some losses (mostly to those pesky squirrels).  We're thinking about what we might plant for the fall now and are planning in advance for next spring!


  1. WOW! Those are HUGE! Our garden has produced lots of tomatoes, but our squash did not do as well.

  2. You did great with the cukes. Too bad you missed them at their prime.
