I needed a bell pepper and found one finally starting to turn orange. While picking it I found these 3 monster cucs. I couldn't see them in the jungle that is my pole beans and cucumbers on a trellis. I had already picked 3 normal size ones last week and had been searching for more. I'll have to construct one of those leaning trellises next year.
