The Tale of the Square Cucumber

As told by Matthew W. Shoemaker (filled in by Amber)

Last night, as I was finishing up some chores outside I walked by the garden. I saw something pretty AMAZING!!!

At first I didn't know what it was. Then I took a closer look and realized it was a cucumber stuck in a brick!! I came inside and told my Mom what I had found but she didn't think much of it. She though there was a cucumber stuck in the fence around the plant so she just told me to pick it and come inside.

So I decided to bring the whole thing up on the porch for her to see.

Mom said that it probably started off like any other cucumber, only it had found a brick to grow in

Mom tried all of 3 seconds to free the cucumber (which we later realized there are 2 cucumbers stuck in there!) But it was almost bed time and she didn't want to mess with it. So I asked to get the camera and took these pictures and a video. I was a little hesitant to let my mom put these pictures on her blog. I was afraid we would get too much attention from our "Awesome Square Cucumber." I am certain that once people see this they will be coming from all over to see our "amazingness." I just don't want alot of people I don't know at our house.

Maybe we can just keep this between people we know?
And here's the video of my awesome discovery!!


  1. That is pretty amazing!!!! And i love Matthew's background music for the video!

  2. Matthew...good eyes!!! That really is amazing; i've never seen anything like that before.

    I really liked your story and your video. And don't worry, i won't tell any strangers about it.

    GOOD JOB!!!!!!
