Hopefully the seeds in the propagators will be ok but I may just have made the most common gardening error - sowing too early because the weather was unseasonally warm.
I made a start on the Cucumber trellis though. I've tried many ways of supporting Cucumber over the years from stringing them up to letting them creep along the ground.
The problem I've always found with tieing them upright is that they always seem to bunch back down with the weight of the fruit and if I leave them to grow along the ground the fruit rot, even if I lay them on straw.
This year I have decided to try another tact. I've searched the web and I've created a Cucumber trellis that will support the plant as it grows up at an angle and will allow the fruit to hang which will then allow air to circulate and prevent rotting and other problems - hopefully!
If this trellis works well next year I will build a more solid structure that can still be removed and stored away.
I got some more help from my garden buddy yesterday too. I'm not sure what he was actually helping with but he did a good job of getting all tangled up
Crikey look at the state of the garden border behind him, that's how far behind I am on the gardening due to that stupid flu - Grrrrrrr!
