Cucumber with Prickly Skin

This cucumber is described as a "bush" cucumber plant. The vine is anticipated to be 24 inches in size. The fruit is ideal for salads and pickling.

Some of the leaves have been plagued by powdery mildew. The plant is in a location where the sun is not quite as intense. I have decided to handle the problem by cutting off the leaves with the mildew present. I'm hoping if I can get through the "June Gloom" days (morning marine layer) without powdery mildew contaminating all of my squash and cucumber plants, I might have a really lovely garden this year.
