Cuberbers in a pot

These 'Straight Eight' cukes are coming along better than I hoped for. There are 2 plants in the large pot.

They look great Joan

I planted mine in a pot when I was laid up but one plant per pot

Even then I had to tie them up to grow up the deck trellis


Now I have them in the garden and counted 16 today so far and still loads of blossums

I even picked one to eat, lol,lol

I;ll eat that one for bedtime snack

I only let the ones I want to pickle get big full size too

I;d rather smaller ones to eat

They are sweeter and more tender

The one I picked todayis not full size, almost but not
