    My cucumber vine has grown and already flowering..but for some reason all the leaves are looking as though something is eating them but i haven't seen any caterpillars or bugs or anything at all on the vine or around the area...there are no longer any leaves on the vine at all and the flowers are not developing in to fruit..can someone please help!!

    I use a natural remedy for eating bugs and caterpillars...4 tbls spoons of tabasco sauce mixed in a liter spray bottle of water...and spray the plants when they are dry and the sun is not at its peak, you don't want to burn anything. Spray the tops and underside of the leaves.

    Good luck, gardening is a learning adventure!
