Would you share a picture of your cucumber plant? What variety are you growing? Did you start from seed?

I'm new to veggie gardening... and I grow them in containers on a sunny balcony. I've only done peppers, broccoli, lettuce, kale, chard, different kinds of herbs, carrots, and of course tomatoes so far! I really want to grow some cucumbers - and yours look beautiful!! How do they taste? Are they crisp enough? Tell me everything!

Here's a picture of my garden when my cukes started producing, they're on the right side .. tomatos in the back and beans to the left of the cukes:



I'm probably going to pull them in next week. The leaves are starting to yellow ... they've worked really hard this year!!!

My cucumbers this year have been outstanding. I don't even think they are anything other that straight forward cucumbers ... I buy them in a seed package ... simple simple simple. They look beautiful on the inside. My 7 & 4 year olds love them!!!! Watery too!

Beautiful plants! Looks like you've got an excellent location too - right by a door so you can pop out and grab a fresh tomato, and head back in to make a sandwich!

Any one here try those topsy-turvy's ? Was wondering how well they work (if it all).
I have a container basket of two cherry tomato plants, one banana pepper and one green pepper. They've been growing but still green. I've had some yellowing and wilting but that's doesn't seem to
be so much of a problem right now.
