This morning I picked three big cucumbers that had ripened while we were away, and one bright red, shiny jalapeño pepper. There are about a dozen more on the plants and they're turning red as well. I pulled up the tomato plants and the bell pepper plants that never produced fruit to give the cucumber and watermelon vines more room to spread out. Last week before I left I put up 3 quarts of bread and butter pickles. Between our garden and the CSA farm, we had cucumbers coming out our ears.
