Cucubits! :)

I was amazed at the growth after a few warm days in the greenhouse this week!

So looking at a fabulous tray of cucumbers, squashes and pumpkins I decided they were big enough now to go out and enjoy the sunshine!

Last year my cucumbers all died :( , failing miserably to give me even a single cucumber! This year I’m DETERMIND that we will have cucumber FEASTS and they will give us prolific crops all Summer! Wishful thinking?


I at least got one plant’s tentacles to grab hold of the trellis before it perished last year and this year I’m going to try and get them all to grow into high-risers and get them up the trellis I built for the cucumbers and beans.

I have planted out;
  • Telegraph
  • Apple
  • Gerkins

I’m also trying a type called ‘spacemaster’ that apparently grows similar to a zuchinni which I'm trying in containers, since I have limited room in my garden! :)

This picture is not of my plant – it’s what it will grow into (hopefully!)
