They are vining cucumbers. They are starting to spill out of the box, which is good, but there are so many leaves at the base, and with our humid temps it is just really thick down there. And the humidity gets trapped even more because of the lip of the tote, which is a good three inches. So all that down there is trapped by leaves and plastic. Can I just cut away the leaves at the bottom of the vine to open up that space?
