Cool as a Cucumber

Do you love cucumbers? The cucumber see looks like a small pumpkin seed. They are flat and yellow. When the cucumber grows it has two big leaves. The flower grows first and looks pretty. After the flower falls off, the cucumber will grow. You can put chilled cucumber slices on your eyes for puffiness. Or you can cut slices and dip them in salt. Truly, I like cucumber. It tastes good!
