Starting Cucumber Seeds Under Plastic

For the past few years we have started our cucumbers early in the garden and covered the newly planted patch with plastic. This year we thought we'd try something new.

We've had luck with many plants in big pots, tomatoes, peppers, greens, beans. So this year we're going to try cucumbers.

I planted the seeds yesterday in a large pot and covered it with plastic like I do in the garden. 

We use concrete reinforcement wire to make tomato cages and will use one as a trellis for the cucumbers to grow up.

Hopefully this will work. I will post an update later this summer.
