Hanging Cucumber Update

Our hanging cucumber plants continue to grow and bloom, but have yet to produce anything edible. As with the tomato plants, I think it's just too hot for the blooms to set. I've also noticed that that hanging basket's soil dries out much faster than that of our other containers. Currently I'm having to water the cucumbers twice daily.

I love those cone shaped planters, but hanging pots do dry out faster. Veggies require more water & food than other ornamentals. I hope you get some fruit soon. :)
