Even if the heat decides to wreak its havoc on the little blue deck, it’s been a good cucumber year, as you can see.

And, for any first-time cucumber growers who might be out there, here’s a few picking tips for ya':
- Harvest cucumbers early in the morning, before they’ve been over-warmed by the sweltering sun.
- Refrigerate immediately. Happily, they seem to survive storage for at least a week.
- Tend to your cucurbits daily — leaving just one cucumber on the vine (they’re sneaky, so look closely) will halt production.
