Yes for those who know me know that I love cucumber and living in this part of Andalucia means you very rarely get the cucumbers that we are used to in the UK, so I decided to try and grow some! hmmmm this is what was found amongst the leaves this morning, my very first home grown cucumber, now it may look strange but it tastes ok and I look forward to more. At least my strange looking cucumber has not been grown in artificial circumstances like the ones brought from the big supermarkets in the UK! They use plastic houses here in Andalucia, use cheap Morroccan labour to work in these hell holes, just so straight cucumbers can be grown, perfect red tomatoes etc. These plastic houses have wrecked the landscape on the coast of Andalucia and can be seen from space!!!
