Cucumbers - Knowledgebase Question

Started cucumbers from seeds about 2 months ago. I have them on a trellis and they are growing well. However, I have some cucumbers on there and they have stayed the same size for about 1 1/2 weeks. But one of them has grown to be almost the size needed to make a pickle. What can I do to make the other ones get to be the same size.

If growth has stalled, pick the cucumbers on the vines now. This will encourage new flowers and new fruits and those that develop later in the season will be the right size. Best wishes with your cucumbers.
