Cucumbers are funny things. You would not believe how many customers come to the farm, and are shocked when a garden fresh cucumber has prickles on it! Cucumbers are a go to snack for my kids, while they are outside playing in the heat. Because they are so juicy, they make a refreshing treat. I often have to lay down the law and not allow them to pick for a few days just to build up enough cucumbers to make pickles.
