Trellising Cucumbers

I wasn’t sure how having our cucumber plant in the front flower bed was going to look or if it would even produce.  I’ve been pleasantly surprised, though–while it’s been slow going, the cucumbers look great, and are climbing nicely.  There are loads of flowers, and I’m hoping that in a few weeks we’ll start to see some substantial fruit emerge.

The trickiest part has been helping the vines get started upwards–at first it wanted to head out towards the front of the flower bed, but after encouraging it upwards it did finally start to climb up.  I have high hopes for more pickles this year, so here’s to hoping that they continue to do well!
