I planted cucumber seeds on May 9th, but none sprouted. I couldn’t even find any of the seeds in the soil. So I bought two 6-packs of plants – Slicemaster and pickling cukes. I planted these today under the trellis.
I also put some seeds of striped Armenian cucumbers into a little 6-pack with potting soil. This is one of the varieties that didn’t sprout. I’ll keep this in a nice warm location and see if I can get a few seedlings.
I planted two types of cucumber seeds in early May, Diva and striped Armenian. I put them at the back of bed #5, the coldest and shadiest area of the garden. Probably not a good choice of location for cukes, since the soil needs to be nice and warm for them to sprout. I think I’ll put the lettuce in this bed next year.
