Leader pruning is the critical step that prevents our cucumber trellis from turning into a jungly mess.  Since we plant our cucumbers about 1 foot apart and train them up a single string, no sprawling is allowed!  We keep things in order by continuously pruning off all new leaders as soon as we see them.  You’ll find these extra leaders along the vine at each node beside a leaf stem and flower or two.  You can identify the new leader when it starts to develop multiple leaves.  That is one clear feature that sets it apart from the other single leaves along the vine.

I'm trying to ignore the millions of people who've entered our state to watch the eclipse by hanging out in the garden. I'm hoping the tourists respect our private, mountain top land. Oooh, look! I finally have some baby cucumbers!😂

This is what happens when you leave the garden for a couple weeks on vacation and an Armenian cucumber has been hiding in a corner in the greenhouse. Still tastes delicious and have been eating it all this week!

Our cucumbers are coming in strong. We have thoroughly enjoyed watching them grow from seedlings!

Nothing lasts forever, especially cucumbers in the presence of downy mildew. We will miss your juicy crunch, but at least we have tomatoes coming to assuage the pain of your absence. #RIP #cucurbitdownymildew #goodbyefornow #cucumbers #growingcucumbers #plantdiseases #weirdsummer #nofungicideshere
The cucumber thief!! Dexter enjoying his cucumbers he picked himself. Ate 2 of them!! Definitely a great reminder to laugh and take downtime from work to enjoy life and... a few cucumbers 😆#DogCravings #OfficeDog #GirlsBestFriend #GrowingCucumbers #GardenLife #DexterTheDog #WorkLifeBalance #PetsBringUsJoy #Laugh #EnjoyLife #LifeCoaches #ILoveCoaching #CoachingTools #Inspiration
First time fermenting pickles. Yes, I know I didn't use pickling cucumbers but they haven't come in yet and I had a plethora of slicing cukes so in they went. So far they're still crunchy on day 3 but they don't have that sour bite yet that I'm hoping to achieve. I added whole allspice, brown mustard seeds, crushed red pepper, garlic cloves, a cinnamon stick and Dill blossoms. 
What do you like to add to your fermenting pickles? I'd love to know your secret ingredients!

The first of August has brought many good surprises already. 🥒!! Cucumberrrrrs~ #sustainablegardening #organicgardening #growyourown #growingcucumbers #picklingcucumbers
We planted a couple varieties of cucumbers this year! It seems the tags were mixed up at the store though.  What were supposed to be pickling cucumbers look like lemon cucumbers!! Not complaining though...glad to have such an interesting variety added into the garden!! #cucumbers #growingcucumbers #gardening #growinginthemidwest #midwestgarden #backyardgarden #trellising #gardentrellis #lemoncucumber

Our newest little farm helper came for dinner last night and helped me pick some cucumbers afterwards. He got one for each hand, carried them around for a bit and even tried to clean them off in the fountain. He's a cutie @lauren_herzfeld 😊 #iamcountryside #farmlife #farmkid #growingfood #growingcucumbers #cucumber #cucumbertrellis #tinyhelper
Check out this beautiful and functional cucumber trellis we built. The vines grow up the sides and you walk through the tunnel to harvest the cucumbers. No more crawling under low trellises for me!  More info in my blog post today (link in profile above). #growingfood #vegetablegarden #cucumber #growingcucumbers #cucumbertrellis #trellis #diytrellis #cattlepanels #raisedbeds #iamcountryside

So my second wave of cukes have grown up and out of the corner teepee in the primitive garden and there are several good size pickling cucumbers in the canopy. The teepee is over 12 feet high, I am 5'5 🤔 Mother Nature likes to keep things interesting I guess. #farm #farmlife #homesteading #cucumber #growingcucumbers #growingvertical #farmlife #organic #organicfood #organicgarden #organicfood #growyourown #growyourownfood #homegrown #theserafinfarm
Isn't this baby cucumber adorable? I love searching for new ones and watching their progress.

Recovery of the 'Burpless' cucumber in my grow bag. Two applications of Captain Jacks to eradicate spider mite infestation.  Epsom salt foliar spray, liquid fish fertilizer and some Azomite and we are back in business. So glad I decided to focus on my existing plants for the moment. #socalgardening #containergardening #growingcucumbers #growyourowngreens #californiagardening #momswhogarden #gardeningmom
The cucumbers are still creeping and growing despite the heat! 🥒 🌱 #cucumber #trellis #summer #summersun #gardening #garden #green #growingcucumbers #photooftheday #outside #nature

Harvesting cucumber when the fruit at the right size or it will taste bitter and loses freshness. #cucumber #growingcucumbers #tucsongardening #gardening #raygardenday

The other cucumber that I planted looks much better than the first....might need to pull it and give it to my worms for vermicomposting.
