It doesn’t look like much right now, does it? Soon it will be twelve tiny cucumber sproutlets. In about two months they should be yielding delicious ripe cucumbers, which are my favorite thing about summer! Watching cucumber plants grow is absolutely amazing, they climb so fast and attach themselves to things so strongly – sometimes I get a little worried that they might try to take over the planet!
Also in the planting queue for the balcony: basil, lemon basil, leaf lettuce and green onions. Yum!
