Our good furends     REILLY and DENNY    sent us a surprise Pressie this summer... and pawt of it was a package of      Apple Cucumber Seeds...    they came all the way from AUSTRALIA...  Which is where them Mum is originally from... and the HOME OF FOXY ROXY.. (Ernie Insisted we say that).
    So the very day they arrived we Rushed to the Garden with Dad and showed him where we wanted them planted..   and then we WAITED...  

And   WAITED






And WAITED...   while the vines Grew... and BLOOMED

and FINALLY...  

LOOK what we got...   a very SPECIAL Cucumber... that does NOT make Peeps BURP...  

 It wasn't very big... butt It WAS good to eat...    All FOUR of us had a bite and Not a BURP was uttered.

I have never heard of such a thing …but you know I am always up for trying new treats! And how nice that's it's not too big …I like my treats compact but tasty.

Crikey ..... you call that an APPLE cucumber???? Apple cucumbers are at least as big as apples. That's a grape cucumber or something. Did you two, maybe, pee on it?? Somehow it got STUNTED!! Mum LOVES apple cucumbers. She eats 'em just like apples and she NEVER burps. A few too many seeds for my liking!!

Wow never seen one of those before. How cool is that and how kind. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

gosh it was very small - normally they are double that size - more like a large apple size - so long as it tasted good though.

SHE loves apple cucumbers. We didn't even know they were from Oz. SHE tried to grow them last year, but Roxy dug them up and said NO.

We're not even putting in a garden this year. Dui doesn't like gardens..BOL!

Emma said...

Murphy said...

Sweet William The Scot said...

You got just one ~ well at that rate I don't see a cucumber salad in your future. Hope you saved the seeds so you can try for a bigger crop of two next year.
Maybe by 2020 you will hit the motherload with a dozen.
That was wonderful getting those seeds.
Thanks for being a friend

Pawsome cucumber.

Taffy said...

Wow! That is great that you got to grow something special from down under! My momma loves cucumbers but they sometimes make her tummy hurt. Wonder if that one would. It is very interesting being called an apple cucumber but it doesn't really look like an apple!

Braeden and Seth said...

What a cute little cuke! We have never heard of them. But then again, we don't have a garden because SOMEBUDDY likes to dig *ahem* Seth.

Waggies,
