Cucumbers Are So Sneaky!

I have a couple of straggly Cucumber plants up high on a shelf in my sunroom and they produce a surprising amount of Cucumbers.

The interesting thing is that the Cucumbers growing on them stay small for quite a while..... and then all of a sudden they are big. Like they double their size 2 days in a row. I'm always surprised when I see a big one hanging on the vine where I was sure there was nothing the day before.

Yesterday when I crawled up on a chair to water the plants I saw something laying in one of the pots....can you see it?

That sneaky Cucumber plant....hiding a big juicy Cucumber right along the inside rim of the pot!
