This morning I headed outside at the crack of dawn. It’s supposed to be 80 degrees here today, and YES I know, I am a total lightweight, but come on, up here in the Seattle area that’s like scorching hot. Anyway, when I was in the greenhouse watering yesterday, I noticed the cucumbers I had planted in a gutter a while back were all over the place.
But in order to actually get to the cucumbers, I had to pull everything out.
Which was actually a blessing in disguise, because the plants were too crowded in there anyway.
I grabbed some baker’s string and carefully tied the cucumber vines to the greenhouse frame.
Now, the cucumber vines have plenty of room to grow, and I have a bunch of dangling vegetables to look at every time I walk into the greenhouse Yee- Haw! Farming in suburbia, who knew it could be so much fun.
So what’s happening in YOUR garden? Got any dangling fruit? Are you using any unusual growing methods in your garden this summer?
Mavis wants to know.
And for those of you who were wondering, YES, the heart shaped cucumbers I was trying to grow turned out great!
