Planting Cucumbers

About 2 weeks ago, I put the cucumber plants out in the garden. I would have done a post about them sooner, but for how busy this time of the year is, and a certain stomach flu that knocked me flat for several days- Yuck.  Anywho, I had started the cucumber seeds several weeks ago in plastic drinking cups. Harland had prepared the bed, and put down weed barrier, so it was just a matter of cutting an opening in the barrier and digging a hole, unpotting the plants,

placing them in the hole and filling with soil,

and then watering generously.

I planted the Bush Crop variety which doesn’t travel all over the garden, but stays in a smaller area. I’ll have more posts later about the cukes and their progress.
