A stitch in time saves nero

I’m loving the way this crafty cucumber has stitched itself through the holes left by the flea beetles on the cavolo nero.

Aside from a couple of over-enthusiastically darned leaves, these two seem to be very happy sharing a bed together.

I’m wondering if I should remove some of the cucumber flowers as there are so many… Have you grown crystal lemon cucumbers before? Any tips to share?
