The cukies are climbing happily up the mesh, and already have baby cukes! I planted 8 "burpless" and 4 "lebanese"! I've also put in some zucchinis with the cukies. Going to be a crowded bed again...
The bed hasn't been totally vacated, as the 3 of the romas just keep fruiting, and I haven't got the heart to pull them out...But as warm weather brings the tomatoe flies, they are now getting picked as soon as there's a tinge of yellow, and left in the sun to ripen.
Selfseeded tomatoes are also doing very well, not sure what variety they are, but very tasty!
My seed sprouting efforts have been quite successful - winged beans and rosellas, which have been put into their beds, and okra - finally! I'll let the okra grow a few more leaves before putting them out in the real world!
The sweetcorn patch is coming along nicely, and I've sowed snake beans at the back of the patch - seedlings have just appeared.
I've got luffa and bittermelon seeds in their little containers, and hoping to see them poke their little heads out soon :) I've stopped buying seed raising mix - make up my own with palm coir and vermiculite, and have found it quite good.
