Container Cucumber

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!

It’s just very tiny right now.

It’s just very tiny right now.

The bad news: this plant is beginning to show signs of mildew. Dang!

    Mildew, eh? Mmmmm….. what could be making it so humid where you live? Some source of water……..

    Congrats on that tiny little cuke. You could make the world’s smallest batch of pickles!
