there are an abundance of cucumber plants in the community garden and they are moving along with their season...the largest of the plants has begun to vine...a sure sign of many more to come form the twenty-seven plants out there...i have been preparing for this eventuality and brought the first pole of the first trellis out of the back of my truck...i placed close enough to the plant to let the vine touch ( if memory serves me correctly the vines spiral up in a counter-clockwise direction so i placed it tot he left of the vine...if i am mistaken it will be simple enough to move ) so it knows the support is there..i expect to see it wrapped around the pole an addendum, you can see the emerging awns on the seed head of the black tip wheat plant in the photo...just another cereal grain in the garden, symbolic and decorative.
