The Ones That Got Away... From Me...

Super-Sized

Monsters come out of nowhere when you don't keep a close watch on the production end.  This is evidenced by the huge Armenian cucumber.

The jars are the 16 ounce size, to give a little perspective.  I think I see more pickles in my near future.  Once these vines get started with production, it can be difficult to keep up!

The Long And Winding Bean

Over the weekend, I was checking things out.  I was scared by this huge caterpillar!  Then the recognition set in.  It was this huge yardlong bean that was missed during harvest time.  The diameter is about the same as my finger in most places, and thumb in some.

It produced some great seeds.
