Journal July, 8, 2015 - Cucumber bonanza
The plants have grown up one side of the greenhouse, up to the peak, and down the other side and have begun to infiltrate the tomato plants. The tomatoes, on the other hand, are fighting back, as they also have fruit hanging above my head also.
The one drawback of the Matilde is the number of male flowers. I have never grown a variety that has produced so many male flowers. The spent flowers are all over everything, hundreds of them are laying everywhere. It has been necessary to use a shop vac to pick them up so that they don't begin to rot and draw bugs.
