Too late for cucumbers?

You've got plants that are already producing male flowers - the female ones will be along shortly - it's worth waiting ... what've you got to lose?

Ah!  That looks helpful DHR  - that should be quicker than emailing them to myself when I'm not posting from my phone. 

More cuttings questions

I've never tried with ceanothus, but I remember a really good at gardening friend being dead chuffed at rooting a ceanothus cutting - she said they were really difficult. 

Don't think they're difficult to grow once you've got a plant tho/

You might find that he/she gets picked on - being so much smaller - it might be worth trying keeping mum with him/her for protection until he/she is big enough to stand up for him/herself ...

I'd buy a few 6-8wk old chickens and introduce yours to them.  They shouldn't fight at that age if they've got plenty of space and things to do to occupy them.  If yours turns (or any of the others) turn out to be cockerels then you'll have to dispose of them before they start crowing.  

Interesting discussion here 

If you don't want to face the possibility of 'disposing' of several cocks, my preferred option would be to buy Point of Lay pullets in the spring  - at least you'll be sure you've ot got cockerels.

However, your chick needs company now ...
