Update on Starting Cucumber Seeds Under Plastic

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.

We are very happy with how this has worked out and will try it again next year in more planters, as well as in the garden.

As a bonus, we really enjoy having the cucumbers so close to the house!
