Too hot to set fruit?  I've had the same issue with some other veggies.  I've had a lot of flowers, pollinators galore, but no fruit on cukes or pumpkins.

CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY OUR CUCUMBERS ARE JUST COVERED IN BLOOMS BUT HAVE VERY FEW FRUITS? WE HAVE HAD A BAD DROUGHT HERE IN TEXAS THIS YEAR BUT DON'T KNOW  IF THAT WOULD CAUSE IT OR NOT. NOTHING HERE HAS DONE VERY WELL AT ALL.

Here too, Tony. Our garden is producing so well that we're giving away preserves, relishes, and fresh produce by the bundle. We've had rain, but we've also had our dry spells. So, all in all, I'm pretty thankful for it doing as good as it is.

Tony, I'd like to know how you manage to be self-sufficient.  Do you use square foot gardening principles, or something else?  Also, how do you manage bugs and diseases with so little square footage?  I'd like to now about climate, water, etc. also.

Hi Nan, I've grown kohlrabi for many years. It is in the cabbage family, so grow it under similar conditions. It is fun to grow because you'll see the 'fruit' growing above the ground, not on it or in it.

Don't plant it where any of the cabbage family, or cole crops, were planted last season. Good luck!

Hi Randy,
I think I am going to go with you and just air dry the clean seeds and plant out next year. There is to many seeds that would be wasted otherwise. I can also buy a package to back my own seeds up. I just finished steam cooking, blending some flesh for pie and freezing the lot for yummy winter cooking. It feels so good to know exactly what you are eating.

CR, I thought it was the other way around. Assuming seeds that sink are cracked and allow liquid in causing them to sink. - You could be right, but I prefer to take 10 suspect seeds and plant them in a flat of soil (or pots) to check actual germination.
Comment by Charlene Rigby on November 2, 2010 at 8:38am
Thanks Randy. I was sorting according to a website site that states viable seeds sink and non viable float. I'll keep them a bit longer to hopefully see another comment from you.
