A few months ago we posted about Starting Cucumber Seeds Under Plastic. This was a two-fold experiment- starting the seeds under plastic (which we have done in the past in raised beds) and growing the cucumbers in a large pot.
So far, success. We ate our first cucumber July 13th and have had one every day since. There are lots of blossoms and cucumbers still coming.
As a bonus, we really enjoy having the cucumbers so close to the house!
