Cukes gone crazy!
Just a quick greenhouse update: We started nearly 100 more cukes just a few weeks ago and they are growing like crazy...so much that we had to already repot them from their original peet starter pots. The main variety we grow are the Straight 8's because they make great slicers. In addition, we are growing Organic Lemon cukes, Eurekas, A & C Pickling, Cucinos and Iznik. The Cucinos are more of a greenhouse cuke (they did great in my windowsill during the winter months) but I'm going to try growing them on a trellis in the garden. We also started an additional 80 broccoli, 80 cabbage and over 100 celery plants...all of which need repotting and thus the short blog post today! Happy spring planting! Oh and for you local folks following on Facebook be sure to check out the discussion tab on The Beer Garden fan page...I am posting several great recipes and updates on what will be available at market time!
