This worked…

By Penny Stine

Nothing long-winded today; I have way too much to do. But check this out... yes, this is a cucumber that I planted next to a shoe rack next to a blue spruce tree that's in the middle of my biggest garden area. I hoped the cucumber would grow all over the shoe rack and would find its way to the blue spruce, which it would climb and give me cucumbers hanging from a blue spruce tree.

I don't know if you can see it or not, but there's a red Sikkim cucumber that looks ready to pick hanging from the vine that's hanging from the blue spruce. Cool, huh?
