Not "castravetele" because of "the" cucumbers?

It's because of the preposition lângă. Like most prepositions (except cu), the preposition negates the need to make the noun articulated (unless the noun is possessed, such as "my" cucumbers). The articulation of the noun required by a possessive pronoun overrides the former rule.
