Cucumber finally? The first few were duds..turned yellow then shriveled up. This one seems to be going for the finish line. It's Straight Eight

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.

Looks great, Suzy! The tomatoes will ripen before too long. They look perfectly unblemished. My peppers have been very sad this year.

Here you can see my cucumbers climbing the back of my green fence. I used this fence for the peas in the spring and let the cukes take it over in the summer.
