Can I eat cucumbers that were looking pretty dehydrated yesterday?
Came back from a week vacation yesterday and found our cucumber plants in very bad shape. We had a friend coming to water them a couple of times but it was very hot and obviously, it was not enough. We watered them as soon as we got home, and again last night and they are looking much better this morning. The cucumbers that were looking super dehydrated yesterday are looking much firmer today. I am wondering if we can eat them? They were almost wrinkly looking yesterday, but not today.

I would think it would be fine to eat them. However, the heat stress may have caused them to produce bitter cucumbers. If so, you'll need to pull them up and start over.
