Their is huge excitement in the Tidy Garden today.
As mentioned in my previous post this week (here), I'm having a go at growing cucumbers this year.
I expected a high failure rate just getting the seeds to germinate, so planted several thousand (give or take). Each & every one has taken and thanks to some inspiration from Virginia over at Tangent Gardening, my trellis seems to holding.
But here's what's got me all excited today....a flower...yes, a flower & behind it a baby cucumber, my first ever!! (easily pleased me).
Admittedly, it doesn't look that inviting at the mo', being quite spikey, but it is only 1cm long.
So I'm employing armed-security guards, a pack of rottweilers & a swat team to watch over my little treasure as it hopefully develops.
(This is the Marketmore 76 variety in case you're interested)
