A month or so ago I decided that I wanted to grow some cucumbers. How to do this became a challenge, as I realized that I really didn't have the space for such a large and sprawling plant. So after thinking it over and failing miserably a couple of times at growing a hanging upside-down tomato, I decided that the hanging basket was the way to go. I planted a couple of cucumber seeds in the basket that I had used for the hanging tomatoes, started watering, and presto--two cucumber plants. The vines will, hopefully, trail down below the basket with the cucumbers hanging on them. Due to the size constraints of the basket, I don't think they will get too big, but we'll see.
