This is what I harvested from the a-frame yesterday:
32 Cucumbers! Can you believe it? It’s October and I am still getting cucumbers.
This is probably the last harvest of the year, but with yesterdays haul it brought the grand total for cucumbers for 2014 to 301 cucumbers. Not bad for my first year’s attempt. I attribute much of this success to my trusty a-frame.
Now, the vines are shriveling and any cucumbers left on the vines are turning yellow. It is sad in a way, but even in the drying leaves I see beauty.
What I find most surprising is that the vines are still producing flowers.
I think if the weather had held out for a bit longer, the cucumbers would have continued to flourish indefinitely.
It was a great year for cucumbers and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
