Well I'm glad you all keep coming back to read my blog and I think I am slowly ironing all the bugs out of it and learning what I am doing...I have recently found out that not everyone can comment so I am sorry to those of you who have tried and haven't been able to and I am looking into getting this sorted so please keep coming by and be patient with me...I'm newer to this than my allotment..lol!!
Anyway I didn't intend to write a post about how the blog is coming along but about my cucumbers...When I went up the allotment yesterday I was very pleased to see that there were a couple of cucumbers ready to pick which is exactly what I did....however so I went to pick them up I got spiked!!!!
Is this a natural thing for home grown cucumbers?? Are all cucumbers spiky?? Were mine supposed to be spiky??
I have kind of sheared the spikes off with the back of a knife and I'm not sure this was the right thing to do either but I didn't really fancy eating pointy things that might cut my tongue. The cucumbers look great inside...have a lovely crunch to them and there is a nice flavour to the skin so I don't think I harvested them too early...anyone else had spiky cucumbers???
Waiting to hear!
