Cucumber Update

Our hanging cucumber plants seem to be doing quite well. They are growing very quickly, and this morning I noticed that one had produced its first bloom. I've never grown cukes before, so I really don't know how well they set in the heat. Tomorrow it's supposed to cool down into the 90s for a few days. Maybe this cold front will help out a little.

Haha, I felt the same way about Laurie when I read "cool down to the 90s", we consider that hot here in the Midwest.

I'm glad to see your cucumbers are doing so well! I hope growing them in a works out, I might have to try that next year if you have success.

my cucumbers have flowers also, but I have some problems now either from hot either from too much watering. (Some leaves turn to yellow) I don't know yet, so be careful
