I had thought that my cucumber plants would come to nought – that they woud be just a mass of furry leaves forever. I inspected them only last week to see that the only actual cucumber on there was shrivelled and dying. But yesterday, while rummaging around in the cold frame to count how many aubergine flowers we had I found this little beauty hiding in the undergrowth. He was just chillin, happily disguised by the huge overflowing greeness of the rest of the plant. So I picked him (heartless) and ate him (ruthless) with a yummy lettuce and a scattering of chopped spring onion from the plot. The only thing missing now is a handful of cherry tomatoes and my evil salad plans are complete!
