I have this planted in my SFG. The label said "Bushy Cucumber", but I'm wondering if its mislabeled OR if its just not growing well. It seems more vine-like, and the first Cucumber has turned more and more yellow. It could just not be growing well, but thought I'd post a pic and see what you think?

Bushy cucumber still will have vines of 4 to 5 feet in length You need to feed it. Either top dress with compost or use a general balanced liquid fertilizer per the label directions or half strength.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
