Crazy Curvy Cukes

So in the garden this year we planted okra, jalapeno, tomato, pumpkin, watermelon, squash, zucchini, broccoli, bush and pole beans, and last but not least cucumbers. There are a couple different varieties, many of which have at the moment slipped my mind. I do remember that there are straight eights and a mici hybrid asian variety.

Anywho, I went out to the garden this morning. Just to kind of give everything a once over and as I was digging through the cuke vines thanking the bumble bees for doing their job i started noticing a few cukes ready for pickin'. And there was one thing all these cukes had in common...
They were curvy as all get out!
Now we've gotten some of these before and they taste just fine except for the skinny part which has no seeds and is quite bitter but the rest of the cuke is tasty enough it makes up for it.
This fella here was about to curve in on himself. The bitter part is the skinny part, in the bend.

A week more of days like this and it'll be picklin' time again.
