Okay so apparently I didn't understand how cucumber plants work or like
what they do
because they just started producing and we already have four pounds of cucumbers
@Annalee I'm reminded of (sub)urban legends about how in *some* neighbourhoods, you have to remember to lock your car doors, or else someone might break in and leave a giant bag of recently harvested zucchini/courgettes in the back seat.
Cucumbers and their family members really can go overboard in producing fruit!
@twotone for sure! We're doing squarefoot and we did two squares for cucumber and then one zucchini plant--the zucchini has been flowering but not producing (probably a pollination issue) but the cukes are going wild. We will offer them to neighbors and the local food bank once they start really going.
