Growing Cucumbers

This weekend is the time to unleash my cucmbers out of their small pots. Cucmbers need a lot of two things; food and water. It can get quite expensive to have huge pots of compost for each plant so I decided to put some manure in the bottom of medium sized pots to give the needy roots continuous nutrients.


As you can see I have broken the semi rotted black gold up and filled the pots up half way.

I used last year’s climbing terrace made out of two old bits of wood and chicken wire.

So all I have to do now is regularly water and train the plants through picking out side shoots and giving them a bit of direction :). Let’s hope the manure works!
