It all looks great, Suzy! Do you use a trellis of some sort for the cucumbers to climb? I know that some people let them grow on the ground, but I do not think the results are as good. Your Fabulous is fabulous and the peppers look like they just need more time. I am happy to see garden buddies growing vegetables.

No, I didn't. I ended up with only one cucumber plant out of several and to be honest I have not given it the attention it probably deserves. It was resting on the wooden edge of the raised vegetable bed, but I moved it to the position it's in (on the dirt) because I thought it might get more sun. It's planted right by the corn and now that it's getting big I think it's shading the cucumber at some points in the day. Next year I do think I will try to trellis them and change the location. I grew these from seed started out of doors, so that is another reason they are slower perhaps.
