Squash and Cucumber Vines Split


Anonymous added on May 26, 2014 | Answered

I have some squash and cucumber plants that the stems are splitting. They are still growing and flowers and small fruit are coming on some of them but can you tell me why they are splitting. I also have them in a raised bed.
