    That is a monster cucumber. I love when a few plants stay alive and already are giving you fruit like your bell pepper plants, they give their best peppers on their second and third year around. I heard that they can last up to seven years if you have them in pots and you can put them inside when it freezes. Great looking plants for sure. I have a few pepper plants that survived the flood and will post a few pics when the sun is out.
