I'm reasonably sure that I read on one of the gardening newsgroups that
if you pinch the growing tips off their main stems curcubits will start
producing female flowers. I haven't tried this, but if the cucumber vines
have reached a good spread, this could be tried.

Not going to fruit much? Are you kidding? How much fruitier do you want
it to be? It's obviously a 10%er. But hey, if it's happy, who are you to
judge? Don't ask. Don't tell. Definitly don't let the neighbors know. If
they find out that you don't have a traditional garden, there could be
heck to pay:-)

I know little about cucumbers but I grow a type called Diva that prodces
only females, no males needed for pollination. You can read about them
Oh yes, they are the only type I grow and I love cucumber sandwiches!
Keep them in mind for next year.
