First cucumbers of the summer

Here are the first 2 Japanese Soya cucumbers of the summer.

They were growing longer and fatter faster than they were losing their deep ribs, so I decided to pick them.

The squirrels never got to these. (I’ve trapped and relocated about 15 squirrels this season. It’s a good thing they like apples and peanut butter more than my plants!)

The longer one weighs 1.5 pounds, the smaller is 1.25 pounds.

Taste? I’ll let you know soon!
