I tried growing cucumbers in a pot on my lanai. They were hard to keep watered – the soil dried out quickly. Besides that, they got some sort of mildew on them. They died.
I had some extra seeds, so I planted them in the compost planter at school. Two seeds sprouted, one plant survived.
It has grown a cucumber! Woo hoo!
The bad news: this plant is beginning to show signs of mildew. Dang!
