Ooops, I mean too many CUKES!
I bought some new cuke seeds, and found some old cuke seeds. One of them is called Diva, and it's supposed to have all female flowers- meaning, LOTS of cucumbers.
The Tri-Star cuke is doing good, too- and actually, I had much better germination with the Tri-Star, than with the Sweet Success, or the Diva. Thanks Skye for the Tri-Star seeds.
