When gardeners go elsewhere

It started as a cute fuzzy fruit about 5 weeks ago. (Time passes... Sometimes I feel like my garden is an experiment in what would happen if you plant seeds then walk away. Accidental absentee gardening.) And then I find this! It was all grown up and lodged squarely between the edge of the planter box and the wall.
This is an Armenian cucumber, which I planted on purpose last year but seem to have grown up out of my compost this year. They've got a classy shape and don't need to be peeled. This one has a more unique shape due to it's spatial constraints.
Last are some non-smooshed ones, which make nice looking rounds, and add some pizazz to salads.
