Cucs again - with photos.

You wouldn't believe it but my son took the first only cucumber off 1 plant whilst I was out this morning.
But below are 2 photos of the same plant, showing top and bottom. ( I hope )
There are small healthy cucs on about 1 1/2 inches long but though they're green they haven't increased in size for a while.

Do you always plant them in these pots Hank? I grew mine in a huge square wooden planter and they grew round the greenhouse on wires or string and did very well. Your pots look a tad on the small side.

Thanks for the comment, C, I'll increase the size next year.

I daren't say too much to him Sue, he might tell me to start cooking for myself, then it would be back to beans on toast !

Well anyway, it will encourage more cucumbers to grow and they are nicer when they're small. Don't worry Hank, we won't see you starve :}
