Two Chicks Farm has a regular spot in our local farmer's market, and a regular spot in our Saturday schedule, as we pick up greens, peppers, potatoes, carrots, chard, etc. The two chicks have been passing me the occasional unusual vegetable to inspire posts called "Playing with my Food." The first one for the 2012 growing season was what I called a Siamese Cucumber. I thought of several things as I pondered the unusual shape of the double cuke.
