It started life in a smallish pot and got moved up every few years until it finally went in the ground under the apple tree. It thrives on neglect, It gets watered very occasionally and that's about it.
Each year we get more and more stems and flowers. last year I saved a head and harvested the seeds and have sown them in a pop bottle propagator and now have some little seedlings that needed to be transplanted into vending machine cups
Burpless Cucumber 2nd sowing ready for transplanting
As Cucumbers do they sulked a little after being transplanted
But by the end of the day they had their Act together
The loan first Burpless Cucumber in the front of the tray really needs to go in the ground soon, in the rear of the tray are Marketmore Cucumbers and some Butternut squash
The second sowing of Lark Sweetcorn can go in the bed this weekend
A top up tray of Beetroots to fill the gaps at Spencer Road
