I think this one might have been planted indoors first. I was trying to experiment with seedlings as I was told cucumbers do not like to be transplanted. @gjones

@kaigia I've done it both ways (start from seed indoors as well as direct seed in the garden). I usually just direct seed in the ground now as I found the cucumber plants seemed to suffer from transplant shock when I started seed indoors first. Yours look like they're doing really good.😊

I didn't realize they were so easy to germinate. This is my second year planting cucumbers, but now I know! I am looking forward to my first fruit as well! @gjones @lesliecole49

Mine are entirely volunteers this year. Composted the area last year and the composted seeds sprouted! Works for me. 😁 @kaigia @gjones

Well, it looks like a big healthy cucumber so you must be doing everything right? Homegrown are delicious😊

@gjones, I guess I'm giving the plant enough water. I was worried because so many of the female flowers were shrivelling and producing any fruit.

@lesliecole49, yes, this is so exciting! Such a different feeling than seeing flowers mature. I can hardly wait to taste it.

@kaigia sometimes cucumbers drop their flowers if you get a hot spell. Your plants look nice and healthy so keep doing what your doing!😊
