I have been way too busy to write and for that I apologize. You can always get daily quick updates over at:
Anyway, with that said I did plant a polyculture for my cucumbers today. I am growing 2 kinds of cukes this year (Yak Kao & Snow's Pickling both are heirloom varieties), which got started separately. In the bed however I broadcasted the following seeds:
Lettuce (3 kinds)
and Kong Sunflowers
The hope is that the sunflowers will provide enough of a trellis for the cukes, the rest are complimentary or beneficial plants that get along together.
Have a great day, I need to get back outside.
