Sadly it's not just in the National Parks etc http://www.rspb.org.uk/news/details.aspx?id=383363

As said last week....No Idea whats going on with Cucumbers

I'd be picking those, peeling and eating them in my salads and sarnies    or pickling them

They look like these http://www.burpee.com/vegetables/cucumbers/pickling/cucumber-picklebush-prod000696.html?catId=cat30006&omn 

I'd love to have grown those too

It's not all about size .................. not with cucumbers

 

Dilemma

I'm tempted to use mushroom compost just to get some mushrooms - but as we're getting a fine crop of wild 'mushroomy looking' fungi that I'm not sure about, I'd better not try to grow and harvest cultivated mushrooms, in case we get them muddled up

The first pic looks like normal outdoor cucumbers - some varieties have prickly skins and are sometimes a bit chunky.   They often have a better flavour than the smooth-skinned ones.

What weed is this?

It's one of the few plants I've seen get the better of ground elder - or at least disguise it
