I'm down to one cucumber plant. The others were damaged in our Spring gales and didn't survive. I brought this one back indoor to grow in the glass house. It's just starting to get tiny cucumbers on it - fingers crossed!

Ever grow a veg and think... when is it ready?!?! (I'm eating them, ready or not.)

I pinched the growing tip of my peppers in Spring (based on an article I read ) and it kind of dwarfed my plants. Oh well, next year, I won't pinch the peppers.

Don't think the radish are quite big enough - thought I'd pull one to check.
Happy gardening - hope your veg is pest free and tasty!
