|My picklebush cucumber plant has a ton of flowers and the vines are taking over. Should I pinch off any flowers? Should I trim back any vines?

|Usually picklebush cucumber plants reach about 2' tall and wide. If yours is getting larger than that, just cut or pinch back the vines to keep the plant more compact. You'll be sacrificing some of the later fruit if you do this, but if it's growing out of control you may have no choice. I think I'd trim it back!
