Thanks! I've actually had to pull out a few shallow rooted weeds, but I think they get tossed in when the landscapers cut the lot next to the garden. I also have to find a new and improved support system for the peas! These "bush" variety peas are definitely trying to climb everything!

So, a question... what do you guys suggest for supports for cucumbers? I have seen some people use tomato cages for single plants, but I have several... I don't remember my mom ever using supports for them, but know it would be best to keep the vegetables off the ground, right?

I'm not sure what you could use for support besides tomato cages. Maybe someone else here will know. I let mine grow on the ground and have never had any problems. Your garden is looking great!

Thanks Shelly! I think I'll let them go for now, and see how they do without support. I have a couple "less than perfect" cages left, and maybe I can cut them to make arches... lay them down horizontally rather than vertically.

Maybe you could put hay under them and let the cucumbers grow on top of that? castle

oh I bet that would work too... especially since the garden drains so well this year Smile Dad and Scott are heading to Lowes today so I'll have to see what I can get them to come home with!

If your garden is draining good you should not have any issues but if not then you could add a little someting to keep them up off the ground. Maybe you could turn the cucumber slightly so it does not rest on one spot. The way your soil looks to me they should be fine without any support. Let us know what ya come up with and how they do.
