I usually begin thinking about planting into the greenhouse in March, just over a month before starting my plants for planting out in the plots. This spring I decided to try growing the Paesana di Soleto and a Russian cucumbermelon in the greenhouse. Then I began growing out my cucumber varieties for transplant from soil blocks. Finally – later on – I decided to try growing a few other cucumber varieties.
Unlike other years I grew in the greenhouse, I decided to try to make the most of the time that I had in order to make sure that I could take advantage of as much space as possible by interplanting lettuce in between the hydroponic baskets.
Then, later on in
the season, I tried growing a couple last-minute varieties. One of these
turned out some seeds while the other did not.
