How's your fertilization schedule
Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by Olaleyeabdullah(m): 2:02pm On Apr 23

The average per plant is always 5...some get 8

How many filled a Bag

Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by Olaleyeabdullah(m): 2:06pm On Apr 23

better! Jorad is a good cultivar. My full review on JORAD vs Greengo loading.... plant Jorad if your market is not deep Green addicted and if it deep Green, plant greengo but you must be ready for serious pruning...4get Murano and tokyo 4now!

Nezzjnr, I know you won't allow me to rest with this county cheesy. I don't allow my cukes to be Big like that before I harvest " the faster you harvest the More you will enjoy it before it life span end" here is how I arrange it...the small one will be at the bottom, follow by the medium,then the bigger one at the top. So it is possible to see 80,90,120 or 130 cukes inside the bag. All can not be thesame the way am bagging it.
