I was talking to my brother today and he said he had a tiny little cucumber on one of his plants.. about the size of a small pickle he said.. so I decided tonight when I went out to water, I was gonna check and see if I had any. Well, I was standing there and I noticed an itty bitty, about the size of a pinky finger, cucumber starting.. and I thought well, his are ahead of mine. So I started moving some of the leaves and looking around to see if I had any more.. and holy cow!!! I had two HUGE cucumbers. One is probably 13+ inches long and the other is about 10 inches long!! They weren't dark green though, more light green and yellow striped.. I almost didn't pick them, but I thought surely they are 'done'.. lol As big as they are.. I should have gotten pics.. but I didn't.. and the big one is already 3/4 gone. YUM!

I also had two little cherry tomatoes!! I picked those as well. They were delicious. lol

I am so excited. I couldn't believe I had cucumbers that large already. I can't wait to talk to my brother tomorrow!!! thumbup
