To borrow a phrase, "A watched cucumber doesn't grow."  It seems like when I have to go out of town for 48 hours, all kinds of things happen.  Happy for you.  Very Happy

She's a beauty, congratulations.  We've been enjoying cucmber salad about every other day.  Little mayo, apple cider vinegar, Lawry's seasoned salt, and dill.  Marinate for a couple hours and delish!

Try finely chopped cucumber marinated in yogurt, dill and garlic. Salt to taste.

sanderson, thank you and I think you are right.  Before I left, all I saw were tiny buds.

llama momma, thanks and that sounds like a great recipe.  I love Lowerys, and will try that.

walshevak, that also sounds delicious.  I sure appreciate different ideas for these cukes, since it looks like there are many more that will be ready in the coming days.

Triciasgarden, thank you very much.

I cubed this 1st one up, with tomatoes and a bit of onion, and added a little Italian dressing.  It was delicious.  My husband and grandaughter had a few cubes raw, and loved it.
