This is a cucumber plant:
Now…I’m not a complete amateur. I have been gardening for several years. I have grown both cucumbers and zucchini. This year…I am truly embarrassed.
I purchased a “six-pack” of zucchini plants, as I was a little negligent in starting my seeds. As the plants began to grow, my husband AND children said “those are cucumbers.” “NO! They are not cucumbers…they are zucchini plants”, I insisted.
Even when the first little prickly vegetable showed up and the children said “that is definitely a cucumber,” I persisted in my assertion.
I purchased a zucchini…and my cruel husband said, “What! You purchased a zucchini? Aren’t you growing zucchini?”
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa…
