Hello Chicky and KEF 

Chicky, how big do mini cucumbers get?  I was given a couple of plants of Patio cucumbers which I presume are mini cumbers - they're setting like mad - how big do you let them get before picking - I've never grown them before.

Good morning Lesley and any/everyone else   Just been out and made sure that things in pots aren't up to their knees in water.  At least the pond's nearly back to it's proper level again.

Off on a day out with son today, so no gardening will be done ...........

Beetle ID please

That's the nymph stage of a grasshopper -
