I do cover a lot of it during the year. Today I was in Dalkey, right beside Pat Kennys house, looking in over the fence at him.

It could have been an alien from another planet in disguise but now we'll never know because you've eaten him/her/it. Shocked Shocked

I think your best bet is to try that guy in Waterford if you're in that area. What he doesn't know about cucumbers isn't worth knowing about.

This is the biggest mystery in 2016 and we're all dying to find out the answer. Very Happy Very Happy

I'm in Waterford today actually. The city though. Nowhere near Lismore unfortunately.

About two years ago I was asked to work on the Clonmel to Carrick on Suir greenway for 8 months but I refused it on the grounds of the amount of travelling every day. Plus I had other jobs on at the time. Mount Congreve looks worthy of a visit and only just over an hour away too.

Mount Congreve is brilliant.

Here's some pics of it from almost exactly three years ago.

Finally found time to call into my local garden centre where I bought the cucumber plants. They were mystified too. Best answer was that it was too much shade but that wouldn't explain the lack of seeds. My melons went rampant like a triffid and would have blocked out the sun alright.
