We have two little 'maters also about the size of large golf balls. They have a date with the skillet this weekend! When we planted our garden, I bought a cucumber plant and put it in a pot to give to a little friend of ours for his birthday. He LOVES cucumbers more than anything and I thought he'd like to grow his own. That plant is on our porch and it is HUGE. It's much bigger than the ones in the garden and it already has a baby cucumber on it. Happy Gardening!
