I have a story about my cukes. My terrier, Oscar, loves to haul things around in his mouth. Last year when the cukes were prolific, he took to carrying and then burying them. In early spring, a bunch (dozens) of plants showed up in one small space in the garden. It took a while to realize that these were Oscar's cucumbers.

That's a good one cc. Rolling on the floor laughing
I have a story too. It's about Japanese Eggplants, and Poo Poo, our dog.
When I was a kid, we had a pom/doxin mix little pooch. She didn't bother anything in garden, except the eggplants. She would pick "one" eggplant. Did she bury it ?
Nope ! Play with it ? Nope ? She knew what to do with it, EAT IT ! 😮
She'd eat a bit of it. Then next day, shed eat a bit more, till the whole thing was gone. Then, when she got hungry for another, she'd do the same thing again.
We all thought it was funny.
We had a waste not, want not pooch. 👍👍 😀😀
