This season's first cucumbers


The first cucumbers of the season are slowly starting to appear in the farm shop, just a couple a day as they get going, but there will be more and more over the coming weeks. We nearly always manage to get cucumbers towards the end of May, and this for us signals the beginning of the end of the notorious Hungry Gap, when we can begin to dream of the bumper summer crops to come. These are Passandra F1 cucumbers, a lovely squat European variety, one of the few hybrids we grow.
