Armenian Cucumbers

I haven't had much luck with cucumbers this season. The slaters were decimating all my seedlings faster than I could replant them. With 2 exceptions: my Bari cucumbers seemed to be on the 'not-to-eat' list of the slaters. They were in the same bed as the other cucumber varieties. So at least these gave us the odd juicy, crisp cucumber.

Then there are the Armenian Yard-Long cucumbers that I planted into a different bed in February. They have started to produce some cucumbers now. This is a favourite variety in this household. They are juicy, crisp and even when they get very big, they are still lovely to eat. Let's hope the slugs, snails or millipedes don't discover them before we have a chance to harvest them.
