The cucumbers grew much better last year climbing up the fence. In previous years they had been planted in the bed opposite the walkway, with plenty of space to creep along the ground. Things went OK but never any spectacularly good crops. They flourished, however, when given the opportunity to climb that chain-link fence last summer.
I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. The idea is to post every day, except Sundays, and end up with one post for each letter of the alphabet. It’s a good challenge to help me to blog every day.
