Hi. We've got a nice little garden so far, except for the collard
greens. Several types of tomatoes and hot peppers are doing well.
Squash is doing well. Cucumber is over 8' long now (with no fruit

3) (bonus question) should I be worried that the cucumbers haven't
We're in Savannah, if that helps. Also, regretfully, about 5 days ago

parsely in the front yard (garden is in back) but I haven't noticed
any in the garden. I can't think of any other info that might help
you all. The collards are growing very well, except for the holes.
