The second planting of cucumbers was put in the ground in June and are giving me some cucumbers, but sadly, the worms are getting them first. Every time you see a cucumber, you see a clustered egg sac like below.
Then, if you look closely at the cucumber itself, it's riddled with holes and sure enough, not in the hole right above my thumb, but the one above that, you can see the little speckled worm trying to run for his life back into his hole.
Not sure how I'm going to stop them with this newest planting of cucumbers. I don't remember those worms coming out so early last year. Maybe I'll see about putting pantyhose or something around them to deter them from boring in, but maybe I'm just making that up. We'll see how it goes.
Speaking of worms....I've got two more keychain designs up on the keychains website. Both of these are perfect for teacher gifts.
