Now that’s what I call a cucumber!

By Penny Stine

I did not grow these big, honking cucumbers. Annie Levan did, but she's too busy selling advertising to write about them, so I snapped a picture of them to post.
These are Armenian cucumbers, and Annie says they grow even bigger and will grow a foot per day when conditions are right. They don't need to be peeled, and the seeds can be easily scooped out with a spoon. I think her family can't keep up with them, so she brought some to work to give away. 
Although I'm growing lemon cucumbers at home, mine are really slow because the bugs or birds ate 'em every time a seedling emerged and I had to plant three times before they finally made it. So I snagged the really long skinny cucumber. I'm going to slice it and serve with an herbal viniagrette.  

Mmmm.... I love eating in the summer.
