= Not Enough Bee Visits to the Flowers


    When there are not enough bees, cucumbers may be partly pollinated. This results in slow growing (tough) and badly shaped cukes.
    Areas where the seeds did not recieve a grain of pollen, will not grow, leading to the poor fruit.
     If your cukes look like these, you need to get a beehive for your garden, or rent hives for your fields.
