Your son is a star, that looks awesome. What are the baby hedgehogs and the ones to the left of them?

the baby hedgehogs are exploding cucumbers. I think that's what I am going to call them from now on :) I must admit they are new to me and I am not sure what to do with them. I will have to ask my son :)

It's great to see people growing stuff a bit out-of-the-ordinary. I can see wing beans there and cucamelons as well as the "baby hedgehogs". I really like cucamelons and I'm surprised more people don't grow them. I think those are crystal apple cucumbers hiding at the top there? They have a very nice flavour, different from the boring old green ones.

More power to them. We'll bring down the supermarket hegemony eventually!

Where do they sell their produce?
