Cucumber

Hi my cucumbers are doing really well that i grew in my greenhouse, but can some tell me about the side shoots, as i get the main stem where the young cumumbers are growing and its going strait up, but looking at it there is shoots coming of that with young plants on, between the main stem and leaves
