My container cucumbers started out just fine. Lots of them, they looked normal, but now....they've started doing this unless I pick them smallish before it can happen. Any ideas why? I know I have too many plants in one pot...lesson learned, won't do that next year. But could that cause this? Maybe overwatering? I'm at a loss. Any suggestions would be appreciated. 01ef17bcf4ed031b674a766545716f60b0c9786934.jpg

It is a pollination issue
