the new-to-me cucumber Salt and Pepper this year. It’s a mini white cucumber, with black spines which easily rub off, and only grows to about 4″/10 cm. I decided on this variety after reading the good review on the More Veg webpage.
As usual I’ll only be growing one plant, which generally provides me with more than enough fruit plus lots to give away. I’ll start one plant off at home on the windowsill late April before taking it to the plot to harden off then plant out early June. If for any reason I have problems doing this there will still be time to sow a seed direct under a clear plastic bottle, which I have done a couple of times before.
I’ve not done much plotting so far this week, just hoed and weeded where I’ll be growing the beans and sweet corn.
I also cut down the old sedum flower heads and stems now that new growth has appeared.
Take care, and have a good weekend!
