    Default Slimey Jumping Cucumber



    I was happily rummaging around in my zip up style tomato/cucumber house....... noticed one at the back laying on the ground...... reached in to hook it up in a branch so it didnt rot...... couldnt really see what I was doing and it felt really slimey.... I thought it had aready started to rot until it leapt out of my hand!

    Im not sure who jumped more.... me or the FROG!!!

    My little girl (nearly 2 years old) loved it until it jumped on her foot! Then she jumped more than the frog!

    Let the poor little blighter find its way back home.... it looked really fat, maybe preggas but I think its a bit late for baby frogs!

    Had to share my experience with you!

    I have loads of frogs on the plot. I love them but they do make me jump. Bit puzzled how you mistook a frog for a cucumber though. I have mistaken a toad for a stone in the past and ended up sitting on my butt in the mud through sheer surprise when it jumped.

    I couldnt see what I was feeling it must have been sitting right next to it! Was on my hands and knees with a toddler handing round my neck lol!

    Loads of slugs in the Zip up so must be really happy!
