Harvesting eight cumcumbers, and more to come :D
Plants grow really rapidly. They look slightly different everyday. I watched them grow from a seed to a young plant. They grew taller and bigger. Then they flowered and here comes the cucumbers, expanding in size and ready to be consumed. It took only 40 days. Amazing!
How to tell the cucumber is ready to harvest?
The yellow flower at the end of the cucumber will drop off.
