Did You Steal This Zucchini From a Garden Library and Replace It With a Cucumber?

There are many mysteries, ones that have plagued history, of which we may never know the answers to. Where did the Roanoke Colony disappear to? Who really was the Zodiac Killer? And who slipped into the garden of a Stamford, Connecticut library and replace a zucchini with a cucumber?

From Atlas Obscura comes a story about the Weed Memorial and Hollander Branch library garden which, for the last year, has had a promising zucchini patch in the garden. Librarian Marissa Bucci was reportedly tending to one zucchini until it was big enough to pick but earlier this week she noticed that the vegetable had been plucked.

*GASP*

But that’s not all! Not only had the zucchini been taken it had also been replaced by....a cucumber.

*SCREAMS*

The criminal actually put two cucumbers down just laying on the plant. “They were just nestled, as if though they belonged there and they were growing there,” Bucci told the publication. “It was premeditated.”

The garden doesn’t have any security, no fence, no cameras, no infrared tripwire system, so they have no clue who made the switch. The lesson here is that everyone needs to protect their vegetables because it’s a cruel, cruel world out there (filled with excellent trolls.)

Any bets on if the cucumbers will be replaced with pickles next?

I can tell you for sure that it wasn’t me. Zucchini is gross. No way I would trade one for a lovely cucumber that could be juiced and mixed with vodka for a refreshing summer drink. You may see vegetables... I see ways to mix it with alcohol. I may have a problem.
