Since I've lived here, we haven't had much luck growing cucumbers.
I vowed to change that this year...
Try not to get too excited boys. I know that photo's a little titillating.
Every other year we've grown them in the ground, in full sun. This would be a successful venture for anyone else, but this hot-ass Carolina sun is just too hard on them.
This year, they're in a drywall bucket on the screened in back porch.
They still are being affected by the heat, and I have to water them twice a day to keep them going. But they're still way better off than they've been every other year...which was dead.
As the title of this post suggests, this is a 'Burpless Bush' cucumber. When my friend Sean saw the tag, he said "I wish my girlfriend had a burpless bush."
Innuendo aside, it's really a very good plant. The cukes that are produced have more girth than length, and they don't curl on the end.
What am I on about, it's impossible to put the innuendo aside!!
Penis! Cucumber! Penis! Cucumber!
Bush! Vagina! Bush! Vagina!
Ok, I think I've got it all out now.
