I usually have a pretty good green thumb, but this year we were invaded by bunnies who ate a bunch of my plants in 1 night when they were starters so I wasn't sure much would make it. I haven't been checking the garden much this season because of that. Well I happened to look under one large leaf of my cucumber plant & couldn't believe my eyes.


Yes that is a 20oz bottle. The only thing I used was a little miracle grow.

So lets see all of your great HUGE veggies or flowers.

I have tons of flowers on my cucumber plants but no cucumbers yet.  I'm in upstate NY.  I don't know if that has anything to do with it.  My soil is very clay-like.  But my sugar-snap peas are killer.  I hope my cucumbers grow to look as obscene as yours do (pun intended).  Also, have you had good luck with miracle gro and tomatoes?

Yes, I planted tomatos last year. The tomatos themselves were normal size but the plant itself was huge & I got a large quantity of them...so many I had to take them into work to give away. One of the ladies said her mother thought they were the sweetest she had ever had.

I also planted peppers last year & had to give them away too because I had so many. Two of the plants were still producing peppers when it started to get cool so I dug them up & gave them to a guy at work who loved them to plant in a pot.

This year we were on a bordeline drought for the beginning of the season so the "watery" veggies are small.

Armenian Yard Long cucumbers, harvested at a diameter reasonable for slicing or pickling. No Miracle Gro -- just sunshine, lots of rain, a little compost, and a beehive 10 feet away.

We also have tomatoes, hot peppers, okra, blackberries, and a half-dozen hens who are busy turning weeds into fertilizer, busting up the soil for next year's garden, picking the bugs and grubs out of the ground, supplying us with eggs, and -- perhaps best of all -- providing a constant source of entertainment.

We're not spoiled or anything. Wink
