Journal July 28, 2013
With that being said, I have made a decision not to grow cucumbers in the greenhouse next year, as they are much too messy and take up far far too much space. Going forward, I will grow them in a raised bed outside on a trellis, and grow sweet peppers, such as Giant Marconi, in the space now being used by the cucumbers.
As I will be removing the cucumber plants in the next few weeks I am cloning six tomato plants to replace the cucumbers in the greenhouse. I intend to limit the plants to one or two trusses and grow them into the fall.
One of the aeroponic cloning system makers recommends plain water on their site, and I followed their advice with the first batch. Although they rooted, they were pale and unhealthy looking, but are now recovering after being planted.
Sometimes it is just best to follow your own instincts and do you own thing I guess.
