It was having some problems over the last few weeks and I trimmed a few vines and leaves off but was not sure what was worng and how to save it.
Must do some reading about cucumbers and the diseases/ enemies.
The other fun item in the garden that has concerned me in the weird and under-grown sunflowers.
I planted seeds for 2 different types and they took off initially but they never seemed to grow. The only ones that grew are no more than 18″ tall and the flowers are only 2-3″ across.
Bad soil, Too much water,too little feed, bad seeds, wrong seeds?
I have a fall plan to build up the soil- something I could never do since I got into the garden in early spring.
Mulch, grass, leaves, compost and soil will do the OVER-winter build up and hopefully give us a great soil next spring.
The soil seems to start plenty of plants quickly and heavily- but they seems to back off.
