Cucumber in a Bottle

Extending and preserving the harvest is the goal of every gardener. But, to have a preserved Cucumber (Pickle) decades later is truely amazing.

Here is the story:

I RECENTLY MOVED INTO MY DECEASED DAD'S HOME (WHERE I WAS BORN AND RAISED)....AS MY WIFE WAS GOING THRU HIS THINGS HE HAD STILL IN THE HOUSE...SHE FOUND A AN OLD ORNAMENTAL BOTTLE WITH SOMETHING INSIDE....A PICKLE!!!.....WHAT IT WAS TO MY SURPRISE WAS A PICKLE...OR SHOULD I SAY A CUCUMBER IN A BOTTLE!!!....WHEN I WAS AROUND 10 YRS. OLD (I AM NOW 51!!!)....I PUT A YOUNG CUCUMBER IN THE BOTTLE WITH A SMALL OPENING AT THE TOP....AND LET IT GROW INSIDE TO A LARGE SIZE.... WHEN IT HAD GROWN TO A FULL SIZE, I PICKED THE CUCUMBER IN THE BOTTLE AND PRESERVED IT WITH VINEGAR....IT MADE A QUITE A CONVERSATION PIECE FOR MOST OF MY TEENS, AND WAS FORGOTTEN BY ME UNTIL NOW!!!...
