Greenhouse cucumbers

Today I picked our first Telegraph Improved cucumber. The fruit in the photo is about ten inches in length, however, this variety can average up to fourteen inches.

There are quite a few cucumbers developing, and I guess I am going to have to reinforce the greenhouse frame to support the weight of the plants.

As this is a heirloom variety I am going to attempt to save some seeds at the end of the plant's life cycle. This may become the only variety I will grow going forward, as it has done exceptionally well.
