Sowing Cucumbers

Posted: 22/02/2014 at 15:09

I wouldn't plant into an unheated greenhouse until May. That means sowing the seed mid April in a propagator/windowsill.

and peace at last....

I'm back from work. I did the petrol fill up and  bought some beef fat to make bird cake with. 1 Kilo of beef fat £1.40. The checkout operator gave me a funny look. No, I'm not putting it in the chip pan.

OH is watching men squabbling in the mud with a funny shaped ball. Time for feet up and a nice coffee.

I would put them in the unheated greenhouse now. They need less heat to grow than germinate. Not enough light will make them lanky, weak and prone to disease.
