Autumn Cuke 2015

During the monsoons last weekend, I planted some new indoor crops.

For this season, I planted Socrates and Iznik cukes. (Will thin to one of each.) Beth tried Iznik outdoors this year, where it failed to impress. But then, I took last winter's Socrates outside in July, and it failed to impress, too. The seedless cuke is downright horrible if it gets pollinated. So, we'll see. smiley

Soaked and planted cucumber seeds on Thursday, because the weather's been so hot. Worth a try... Tried building bigger mounds this year for the "cucumber hills". Nobody's germinated yet.

Planted 6 varieties, really doubting the seeds for 3 of them - they're old. Though I'd be delighted with all of them. I'd be especially delighted if my 7-year-old pearl white cukes germinated. Those aren't for sale anymore, and they're really good.

Kinda silly keeping this in my flowers topic... I listened to the Old Farmer's Almanac, though I thought the dates recco'd for planting outside were way too early... I still think so. But, some lived... Also, my indoor Korean cool-weather cuke was so successful, just have to try it outside, for spring cucumbers. With a couple other cukes that generate more male flowers, since that's been a problem.
