What happens when produce hides?

For us gardeners we understand this question.



Especially when the garden grows full and you don't see much of the ground.



The vining plants go where they want at will and at times we get surprises...



It can be fun and amusing to wonder how we can miss something like this.



But we do.

That looks like a cucumber.  I remember being surprised by the enormous zucchini that were hiding under the large leaves.

Be careful.  If you are hiding your assets, this may lead to a government investigation.

Isn't it amazing how you can check your garden each morning, and think you have picked everything ripe, only to come across a finding like the one pictured.  A few weeks ago, I found a 22" zuchini lurking beneath the leaves.

Maybe some one came and planted this last night, while you weren't looking!

Bill, on a side note...you should never let your dogs eat cucumbers from your garden or in my case the neighbors garden....gives them gas...big time :)

funny how you will get a hiding giant at the end of a vine from time to time, some are great for next years seed supply.
