Q.Golfball shaped cucumbers

Zone zone ?? South Ga. | Thaniel added on July 19, 2014 | Answered

I have two raised planting plots that are filled with top brand potting soil. I have an automatic watering system to spray once each morning. For the 3 plants in each plot, I lightly spray well water each morning about sunrise. The plants are blooming a lot and have a lot of small cukes, but when they start to fill out, they are shaped like golf balls.
