OK, so the cukes could be yellowing from a disease, or deficiencies in the soil (which is weird because it's a brand new bed that has never had anything in it and I thought the soil combination we used was pretty nutrient-rich...). Or it might be because we planted the cucumbers between the yellow spaghetti squash and the orange pumpkins. Or maybe because the bed is too shaded for cucumbers. Everything else in the bed is producing fine, so it's a mystery. I really have no idea which ONE of those reasons could be the answer.
You travel so much, seeing_stars! How fun! I'm usually in WA state for a month in the summer, but this year DH got a new job so we can only go for two weeks. I am such a big baby when it comes to the heat and I want to get out of here. :P
I'm not sure I'll have time to take a soil sample down to the garden center to solve the yellow cucumber mystery, so for now I'll just keep the vines picked in case it is a disease, so it won't spread. I've enevr had to deal with anything weird like this before, I just plant stuff and it grows or dies, that's it. LOL!
