First produce from the greenhouse

This is a mini cucumber which has a small leaf attached at the side, its an oddity I think.  I grew them last year very well so decided to plant some more and this one tasted great in a salad with toms and olives.

I also grow Aquilegias and this year I had a new one which had been pollinated by the bees in my garden and it was a cross between the blue/mauvy ones I have and a white one nearby which has a different shape. So the best of both worlds has come out in my new flower. I am leaving a few more seed heads this year as the results the next year can be fascinating.
