Hello, everyone. I am very discouraged with my cucumber plants. First off, I'm in North FL, zone 8b.
My cucumber vines were doing great, then the bottom leaves started yellowing and dying. I attributed this to being in the shade of the top leaves. They continued to grow and produced lots of male flowers. Well, now the majority of my vines are wilted and flowers are shriveled up.
This morning I discovered 2 tiny little cukes on a good vine. I took a picture of it. Just about 5 hours later, I went to check again and now that plant is wilted! In just a matter of HOURS! I took another picture so you can see the difference.
I took out a bunch of bad looking vines and watered the rest.
Is there any hope for these little cukes?
