Moving my Cucumber Plant for Better Support

Posted on Sep 11 2009 - 3:30am by Mike Lieberman

Three cucumbers have started to come through on my cucumber plant, so I needed to relocate it to another part of the garden for better support. I moved it closer to the fence where I was able to train it up with some string.

I was pretty happy to see the cucumbers since the leaves at the bottom have been drying out and dying. They were picked off and the cucumber trellis that I made was readjusted and tightened.

After the trellis was tightened, the plant had to be propped back up on it and secured to the fence.

Now I’m hoping that this will allow the plant to grow up and be more productive.

    Great video. It was so nice to hear you and see you in action around your plants. I may have to get my fiancee to help me with that. I really enjoyed yours.

    I knew you had a cucumber post somewhere! I wanted to tell you, I think that you should try Mexican Sour Gherkins next time you grow cukes. I have them this year and I think they’d be perfect for containers! Very compact beautiful vines with leaves 1/6th the size of a normal cuke. Trellis easily, aren’t too heavy for themselves, and are really prolific bearers… and the fruit is so cute and tasty! Definitely recommend. :)
