Your tomatoes are a little ahead of mine, I'm only just seeing little greenies. But I envy your cukes. I was very very late getting mine in the ground and they are only just now starting to send out vines. But I figure that at least this year, I should have some ripe at the same time as the tomatoes. I usually run out of cukes as the tomatoes hit their peak *LOL*

Where you at? I'm in Waynesboro, PA, just south of Gettysburg, on the Maryland line.

Thanks for the reply! I am in Eastern Baltimore County - Sparrows Point. My cukes have been tremendously better this year versus last. An older gardener friend told me to spread out some Epson Salts over my plots before I started planting. I put a little down and I have to say, every vegetable I am growing looks much better than last and is producing more fruit. My Peppers are just loaded with flowers much like the cukes. You might want to try that next year. Like I said, I put a little on the beds and just worked it in. Happy Gardening!

I've definitely heard of using epsom salts in growing tomatoes, but never tried it. I think I'll give it a shot, especially if I grown cukes in containers next year. Thanks for the hint! Hey, how about this weather? Up here in Waynesboro, PA, we get just about the same weather you get down around B.more.

We had a terrible storm Saturday night. Winds of 60 MPH, lightning and 3" of rain over a period of 2 hours. Just nasty. No veggie damages so I lucked out.

We did not get that storm, but had a doozy of one several days ago. They pop up like popcorn when the weather hits the mountain range up here. We could use some of that rain.
