Verdun the best advice I was ever given was by Diana Lamplugh, Suzie's mum who started awareness classes after Suzie was murdered. Diana died some years ago from dementia. 

Don't fight unless you can carry it on!  Poking in eyeballs who can really do that  If you run from standing you pull muscles and can't keep running. If you are grabbed drop to the floor women are more equal that way rather than fighting standing up 

Be aware who is around you and walking home if suspicious keep crossing the road, you know if you are being followed. If grabbed scream FIRE!! people respond to that not to cries of HELP   If you are chased throw something through a window with a lights on anywhere in the street, you can repay if you are still alive.  

When approaching your car in the dark have your keys ready in your hand don't start fumbling in your handbag..if you are attacked keys are better to disable someone with rather than your fingers. 

My old gran used to say if they are bigger than you smack them in the throat 

Thankfully I haven't had to do any of the above.

I'm no spud expert but I would say you will get more, I grow in sacks in S.Yorks and I've topped mine up again and thrown an old net curtain over them as I think we can expect frost for the next couple of nights If you don't have net or fleece cover them with newspaper overnight. Good luck

dodo, don't worry if you grow cucumbers that are F1 hybrid it says so after the name you don't need to worry about removing male flowers, in fact most cucumbers these days don't need you to do that, I have grown quite a few varieties and haven't had to do that for years.

What variety are yours?

I grew it in self watering troughs meant to be window boxes, kept it well watered and frequently emptied the water from the bottom so it didn't get stagnant but kept the roots well wet
