Baby Cucumbers

We have cucumbers! After about a month of unsuccessful blooms, this morning I found six tiny cucumbers on our lone remaining plant. It's going to be interesting to see if the confines of the hanging basket influence how large they grow.

Very Cool!

Yay that you finally have some cukes growing. I hope they reach maturity, and I too am curious if the hanging basket will lead to smaller cukes!

Congrats!!! They do take a while before the female ones start to form, but yay. Soon you'll be rolling in cukes!

Am anxious to see also if the confines of the hanging basket has any thing to do with size. Keep us posted.
It's a great thought. Nest yr. I think I'll try this.

Yay! I know this is weird to say about a vegetable (or are cucumbers technically fruits?), but those little baby cukes are cute!
