Temperature extremes tacking there toll, few more and the plants going to keel over I think. Time for the heat pots at night. #edinburgh #scotland #geodome #cucumber #hydroponicsviii

@Naomi126 Are you pollinating your cucumbers? I have heard here on GardenTags that pollination of the blooms can lead to bitter cucumbers & that it's best to not pollinate them. At first I thought this meant no cucumbers would develop until I harvested my first juicy cucumber which bloomed when there was not a single male bloom around anywhere. However it still grew into a juicy cucumber & without a hint of bitterness.

Ok hands up the dog did actually eat the label ( promise miss 😂) so I'm hedging my bets this is a cucumber... Or a melon, either way 😋
