There are members on here who use forks to weigh down cucumber with no problems, if you are worried about possible injury then you could use a spoon, I use plant weights but there are countless other options used. There is also the screwcumber as seen here HERE

I use one of those spoons with the long handles like you would get/use when eating a knickerbocker glory icecream.

Its great because you can have several slices of cucumber or a mixture of different sliced veggies down its handle.

The Bns seem to enjoy the variation.

Good Job

Jon

hi nas,
try sticking half a wafer in a piece of zucchini/cuke/cor , leave the wafer sticking up and the plec will go to it,as it knows it is food, will get a taste of the veggie and should begin eating veggies...may take a few tries,but had to do it with a common plec as he did not recognize the veggie as food at first.... then ate everything Wink HTH,
Georgie

I was feeling the same. In the end i chose some butter knives at the $2 shop. nice and blunt and heavy. Thread it along the length of a cucumber and your set.
