Boothby Blonde/Poona Kherna Cucumbers – 1 pound
You may see some larger cucumbers, some brownish or rust colored cucumbers and even some greenish cucumbers mixed in with the light blonde Boothby Cucumbers.  We tried a new variety of heirloom cucumbers this year, Poona Kherna.  No sure if we will grow them again.  They are an heirloom variety that grow very uncontrolled in so many different shapes and colors.  They are pictured in the seed catalog as a rust brown cucumber which should have been a hint right there, but I thought we would give them a try.  They still taste good-just very unpredictable and the brown ones are not very appealing.

Slicing Cucumbers – 1 each
Early Jersey Wakefield Cabbage – 1 each
Scallions – 1 bunch
Lettuce – 1 head - this is quite small, but all that will grow in the heat.  Lettuce does not produce well in hot weather.

Peppers – 3 each

The little ugly cucumbers you mentioned were the best I ever had. I actually made cucumber sandwiches. To tell the truth, the taste was sensational.
