Cucumber Incumbent

My cucumber plant has been going strong all summer, and still now in these chilly days. I am very impressed by its longevity. Though some parts of the plant have died off, it is still trying to squeeze a few puppies out.

The babies are so dang strange. They look like little punk rockers. They have spikes all over them and they are darn pointy!

I think the cucumber wins the race over all.

I do still have a few eggplants though...

gone, all gone...

These were the beautiful carrots from my garden. I had so many more photos of them, but my camera decided not to save the images after some others were uploaded. It is very sad actually.

They were quite amazing. The variety is called carnival carrots, and they are all shades of what you see here. When you cut them in half, there is a lovely surprise... and here I would have inserted one of the lovely pictures now lost in cyber space...

The red ones had a stunning orange and green interior, and the white ones had a streak of green cutting through it.

Sorry I don't have them to share anymore. I did eat them, and they were delicious!
BTW, the carrots below are Oxheart...
