I let some of the cucumbers on my vine get too mature. Now all the female flowers my vine produces are shrivelling instead of turning into real fruit.
1. Am I wrong in thinking these two are related? Similar question: when cucumber vines "shut down" because of overly ripened fruit, do they keep producing female flowers at all? I am currently looking at a vine with shrivelling flowers, not a vine with only leaves and tendrils
2. What can I do to get the plant producing again?!?!
I guess if i need to i can just plant some more... they grow quick enough
