In the meantime, if you've got any questions, comments, suggestions you want to throw my way to address when I get back ... or maybe you've been wanting to try something new but are afraid to tackle it and want to see someone else torture themself with it first, let me know. I'm always up for a challenge. ;)
As for my question, as soon as they opened for the season, I stopped in at our local garden center to pick up some herbs (because those are the only things I can grow). On my way out, some starter pickling cucumber plants caught my eye. We eat so much Watermelon-Cucumber Salad in the summer, I figured what the heck, and grabbed a few to put in pots out on the deck to see what would happen. Well, this is what happened. I ended up with what look more like limes than cucumbers. Anyone know why they're growing round like this?? A lot of them have come up, and they have a good flavor to them, but they're all shaped this way - doesn't matter if they're laying on the soil, hanging over the side, etc.
