Re: Cucumber Advice needed and Marketmore mystery!

Re: Cucumber Advice needed and Marketmore mystery!

The marketmore cucumbers I have grown in the past have been prickly but I do think there may be a smooth variety as well-may be the indoor variety.

Yesterday a pair of collared doves found their way into my garden! It was rather funny watching one trying to jump onto the bird table from the roof of the bird table-they looked like giants!
The good news is that they have returned today! Maybe a pair?

What birds visit your garden?

Haven't had many this winter but I tend to get blackbirds, a family of housesparrows and a million starlings-it's like a scene from a certain Alfred Hitchcok film! :shock:

Yeah I'll be doing the bird watch. Had a bird table for about 6 months now-recently bought a bird feeder and some fat balls and peanuts. Sat at my window now but no interest so far-hopefully they'll get he message by the weekend!

It's finally happened...!

Hi everyone-I have harvested the first of my fruit and veg (marketmore cucumbers)! Even my boyfriend liked them and he doesn't eat cucumbers! I love having fresh produce in the garden-it's so convinient and tastes way better that supermarket stuff! Just thought I'd share my happy time! :D

marketmore cucumbers

Hi,

Tigger gave me these spikey little fellows-just wondering how big they have to be before I harvest them? I've got one that's about 15cm and the spikes easily rub off now.
