Cool as a cucumber

Not long planted, and the cucumbers are already in flower and, in this case, swollen with pollination.

My Nice Man tells me that cucumbers are pollinated by the vibrations of bumble bees’ wings. Having a degree in zoology from Oxford, he should know. This acquaintance is coming in quite handy, as I only have a degree in Fashion and Marketing from Newcastle Polytechnic. Which doesn’t help much when it comes to cucumbers.
