No idea. Just outdoor homegrown weed. It's a lot less robust in the greenhouse. Taller, skinnier, wimpier. we'll see.Indica?
They're not.... just dragging along. There were tons of flowers, then lots of little baby cukes, but everything is just kind of withering away. I'm getting enough to eat on every day though, so I can't complain.We have been battling caterpillars and slugs a bit in the greenhouse, as well as aphids. Also, we don't (can't) effectively pollinate the cucs by hand because we have things a little (perhaps a lot) too crowded.
So, we've been catching lady bugs and bumble bees like crazy to put them in greenhouse jail for a while. Together with lots of existing spiders and other bugs and the coming-and-going snake we hope we'll get a balance.
what eats slugs?
how are your cucs doing TNT?
I'll try to remember and get some more advice from you next spring when I start over .Both my wife and I have forgotten to pick up beer the last times we were in town. Our plan is to feed the slimy buggers beer.
feed your cucs epsom salts. Yes. Epsom salts. About a tablespoon or two per quart of water. Magnesium. They will like that. Especially while flowering. Worth a try. Keep the soil moist. Do your pots have drain holes? Water them until they start to drain. Fish fertilizer never hurts in normal amounts.., but magnesium sulphate (epsom salts) will help almost for sure at the flowering stage.
as for catching bugs, well you just catch them. In your hands, in a jar, whatever. Bumblebees and ladybugs are docile and slow-ish. Easy to catch.
so are garter snakes easy to catch. Easy-ish.
I did a second planting of a few seeds too.I just planted cukes for the third time. They are up just a couple of inches.
We are growing Markenmore80 this year.I did a second planting of a few seeds too.
I think since this batch looks so pitiful, I'll start over with fresh soil and see what happens.
What kind did you plant? What do you have them growing in/on?
Did you have any the first and second planting?
Nice!We are growing Markenmore80 this year.
Yes, the first two planting did well but the plants get disease easy so we succession plant. We are on our 5 planting of squash and green beans.
We grow in the soil and have about 3,000 sq. ft. of garden.
