Now, about that cucumber.
It survived 'Drought by Cook'
and even if some leaves are a little yellow,
it has loved being in the greenhouse.
It has an abundance of flowers but no fruit.
This is probably due to the lack
of pollinators inside the greenhouse.
Tomatoes and capsicums happily self pollinate.
I have been tapping the plants each morning to assist them with this.
So the verdict is:
Cucumbers grow really well in a greenhouse.
The other cucumbers (in a pot outside, and in the ground)
are pathetic specimens... not even worthy of a photo.
However, cucumbers do not fruit in the greenhouse.
So I will be moving this one
outside shortly to see what happens.
This container of salad greens is a surprise.
I didn't think they would like the heat at this time of the year.
However, I keep picking them and they keep re-growing.
I will be planting a replacement crop soon.
There are some brassicas
(broccoli, purple sprouting broccoli, and broccolini)
ready to be transplanted into the veggie patch.
Not only did they germinate well,
but the dreaded white butterflies
have not found them in the greenhouse.
And the chilli....nice.
I am counting the days till I pick this one!
Verdict: Capsicums LOVE the greenhouse.
