Cucumber Polyculture

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.
