This is my second year gardening. Last year I planted lots of spaghetti squash, and a pumpkin got mixed in so I had a lot of hybrids. Then this year a number of volunteers of spag squash and hybrids. I am all mixed up. this year I planted zucchini, and it looks like a number of hybrids also. And cucumbers: lemon cucumbers and another kind that I don't know. I get plants from the local community college for $1 each. Good price but not always labeled. So here are pictures of the three cucumbers. They are about 6 inches long. I have not picked one yet. Any ideas? PS I looked in the identification files and did not see anything like this. Linda

the flower and the fuzzy stems looks like a zuchinni or some kind of squash. the only way to find out is cut it.

If it is a cucumber then it might be an aremenian cukes.

I am interested to know what they are when you cut them.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
