cucumber plants are a case in point. A while back (can't remember when- October some time?) I planted some cucumber seeds. Two lovely seedlings duely appeared, and I carefully tended them. When they were getting to about 8cm tall I transferred them to the garden. So far, so good. And so same. But something has gone wrong. I initially started this post when there were still two plants, although one was looking pretty bedraggled. Unfortunately, one plant has now given up the ghost. The other however, is going from strength to strength -
|Early growth on my stronger cucumber plant|
|The poor weak cucumber plant which has now completely given up|
|The remaining cucumber plant going (and growing) strong|
Mind you, my radishes are going ok, and they were just seeds sprinkled in the garden bed.
|Early days of my radishes (and I think that was rocket seedlings coming up too - sadly the slugs seem to have destroyed them)|
|And radishes growing strongly - as my dad says (quite scornfully I must add) "even a child can grown radishes"|
And here is my capsicum plant also grown from seed.
But this very prolific capsicum plant was planted from a seedling.
|Lots of capsicums although they don't seem to get any bigger than this quite miniature size|
