Calling All Gardeners

I need your help.  Just last month I bragged about how well my garden was growing.  And I showed you this picture of my cucumbers.



























Fast forward almost 30 days and I'm no longer bragging.  Something has gone terribly wrong.









































































I'm a little freaked out and a little puzzled by their appearance.  I'm afraid I won't be making homemade pickles this summer.

So all you seasoned gardeners out there, I need your help.  What did I do wrong?  Is it because I started them in planters and grew them too close together?  Is it because I didn't provide a proper crawling trellis?  Is it because I moved them into a raised garden bed, but didn't actually plant them, just kept them in the planter boxes?






























Did I give them too much water and sun, or not enough of either?  Could the soil be bad?

... And is there any hope for these new blossoms?!?







































Please say there is...

  1. Oh, I so wish I could help you! I have the worst black thumb of anyone I know. I'll ask around to my more garden friendly friends though to see if they have any answers.
