The perfect balcony cucumber

The Talladega cucumber plants I planted are doing great and putting out lots of cucumbers. The last couple I picked were less seedy than the first ones. The biggest so far was 9 inches and tasted great. The plants are resistant to several diseases so I haven't been plagued with powdery and downy mildew like I have in the past with similar plants. But the spider mites have found there way onto the plants and are slowly increasing their numbers. I'll have to start spraying the plants down but considering it's August and I've already harvested some really nice cucumbers from the plants, maybe I won't bother.
