I’ve never been a fan of cucumbers, but they are on my list of things I decided to learn to like. It may not be possible to learn to like everything you dislike, but I can always try. Since cukes were on my list, we decided to plant one this year. The variety is called “White Wonder,” and the first ones are in! They taste pretty good as far as I can tell. The one on the left was sizeable when we went out of town last week, but I waited to pick it until yesterday. It seems a bit seedy inside, but I’ll have to see what the other one is like. It was also pretty smooth, but Â I got a “splinter” from the spiny surface of the one on the right.
