It is Cucumber Day in Britain. Why on earth would they have a day to celebrate cucumbers? Well this is what the website says:
Initially it might seem like an odd idea for a National Cucumber Day, but when you think about it the role of cucumber makes a lot of sense in our aim to become a healthier nation!
Did you know that a cucumber is 95% water? And that it's a fruit?! It comes from the same family as squash, watermelon and courgette/zuchinni.
Cucumber also has many health benefits. It's a great source of potassium and essential vitamins and restores water to the body.
If you have younger children and you are looking for a picture book Sally Smallwood has a photographic book with the same name.
