    Hi Kavita. How has your garden been doing since you posted your comment? Did you try the beans and cucumbers again?

    This is my second year growing an heirloom golden bean, which is to be left to dry on the vine, and to be used for baked beans. This year's crop is doing pretty well.

    This is my first year growing cucumbers from seed (started indoors). I'm not having much luck, so far, as the plants have produced lots of flowers but no cucumbers.

    Im not sure what the white film was. I do know that it takes approx 12 visits from a honeybee to a cucumber flower in order to get quality pollination and good veg set.

    Last season I had trouble growing beans and cucumbers. They got a white film on the leaves & fruit. Any ideas about how to prevent this? I'd like to try growing them again this year.
