I wanted to share my gardening disaster with you.
I always seem to have great success with growing cucumbers, well at least for the first month or two and then disaster strikes in the form of Red Spider Mite. I usually manage to get 4 or 5 cucumbers before the plants loose their fight, I spray water and try keeping the greenhouse damp as I don't like to use insecticide but to no avail.
Later in the season I sowed some Lemon Cucumber seeds, I've never grown these before but I thought why not how much of a disaster could they be. Well true to form, the plant started well and looked healthy with lots of flowers and lovely green leaves but very few cucumbers appearing. I did manage to get one cucumber of each of the two plants - whoopee!
Well here they are and don't they look pitiful, only the size of a tomato. I won't be growing Lemon Cucumbers again, in fact next year I may not bother growing cucumbers at all. I think we need some time apart!
