Taking Flight

The snap peas finally gave it up and the cucumbers were seeded. Despite super hot temperatures and only a drip line to moisten them, each and every one of Territorial Seeds 'Miniature White' (although what makes them miniature, I do not know) sprouted. I'm pleased. These will grow fast now, and we'll have cucumbers in just a few weeks. And these look as if they're spreading their wings. 


  1. isn't it late for seeding cukes? or just too late up north in boston?

    1. I seeded them on July 1 or so. Plenty of time in these parts for a full crop. They usually succumb to mildew here after a month of maturity anyhow. We'll be in August-September cukes.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
