Late Cucumbers

Although they’re a bit late this year it does look like it will be a good year for cucumbers. I think the delay was caused by the dryness. This particular cucumber is growing in the back of the open farrowing shed at the house end. I used glazing panels on the roof which makes it into a bit of a greenhouse and the pig pond is just in front of it. I’m hoping that the tomatoes and cucumbers in there will survive the early frosts due to the wind protection and the micro-climate. Perhaps we’ll have fresh ones through the fall.

    I encouraged my neighbors to put their vegie table waste in my compost pile. Two weeks after they had salad, I have cucumbers growing out of the center of my compost. No fruits yet. I don’t know if that’s because of hybridization or just too early. Ought to be tasty fruits though, if they come.
