    Just harvested my first cucumber of the season. I remember these from when I was a child. I picked it before it was too large and it was very tasty, mild cucumber taste, not harsh at all. I’m saving up a few now to make refrigerator pickles. Takes me back to my days at home as a child. Thank you, Bonnie Plants, for the memories of home.

    bitter cukes this year: My single, containerized straight 8 has produced fairly well despite suffering with several curcubit diseases all along. The cucumbers however have been on the bitter side, a trait which is prominent in the striaght 8 from what I have read. Thought by researchers in the Northwest to be caused by cool weather, that is not the problem here in North Florida. I will choose a different cucumber to grow next time, one that is less prone to be bitter. I liked one called Green Ice I grew a few years ago.
