GROW YOUR OWN: CUCUMBER & SALAD

The cucumber seeds I planted april 27th, is finally showing progress. I have kept them in the greenhouse since day one, but it’s difficult to keep a steady temperature, when it ranges from o° at night to 24° at mid-day outside. The cucumber seed is “burpless tasty green F1 hybrid” and the salad is “herby salad leaf mixed” (a mix with green lettuce, mizuna, salad rocket, greek cress, giant red mustard and chicory puntarelle). With no experience on growing vegetables from seeds, except rucola and radish, I follow the process with zero knowledge but great excitement!

I planted the salad in the vegetable bed I made in a previous post and planted one row between two rows of carrots. I planted them a week ago with plastic film over and secured the edges by digging it under 2″ of soil.

I couldn’t resist a light and dark purple verbena accompanied by dark purple petunia.
