First Cucumber of the Season!

Cucumber

Despite my cucumber plants being ravaged by cucumber beetles, I was pleasantly surprised to find a healthy cucumber this morning!

In order to combat the beetle, I put down a row cover which covered the young transplants. The beetles could not get through the row cover, however, it is permeable to sun and water. Removing the row cover is important when plants begin to flower, because they need to be pollinated, at this time they are hardy enough to survive the beetles.
