Cucumbers 2007

Cucumber's are so quick and easy to start from seedI planted these seeds directly into this container with soil. Just be sure to poke holes in the bottom of your container for drainage. I kept them indoors on a windowsill until they germinated, then I moved them outdoors since the weather was warm enough. 5 out of the 6 seeds I sowed, germinated. They should be ready to transplant in about 3 or 4 weeks from the start date. I'll then start a another flat, for a continuous harvest throughout the fall.

My favorite variety is one from the Mediterranean called Garden Oasis, I purchased the seeds fromRenees's GardenIt's a Hybrid, so I can't save the seeds, but it is so worth growing.

May 22 - transplanted seedlings outdoors. I like to grow them vertically, using curly willy branches for support. I can cut them to whatever height I want, and they have lots of nooks and crannies to hold the vines. I actually like to wrap the vines around the branches, as they make their way up to the top, creating like a cucumber teepee.

JulyThe cucumber vines are produing cucumbers daily for me to eat as a snack.
