Cucumber growing tips
Pickling or slicing variety?
Full sun - 8 plus hours a day
Plant them 2 weeks after last average frost date
1 square foot per cucumber plant
Use a trellis - keeps them from rotting, easier to see to harvest
Help pollinate - touch middle of first set of flowers
Keep watered consistently - mulch - you may have to water daily during peak of summer
Use all purpose fertilizer 4 weeks after planting
To prevent cucumber beetle - cover young plants with lightweight row covers until they begin flowering and use crop rotation -pick off beetles - use yellow sticky traps
Harvest often
In segment three Joey and Holly welcome their guest.
Wei Zhang is a polymer scientist, engineer, and an entrepreneur with focuses on specialty coatings and green technologies. He is the co-founder of Zynnovation - which is the company that invented Tree Diaper.
1. What is a tree diaper - how does it work? Why should people use it?
2. If you're wanting to incorporate trees into your landscape, what are some things to know before you just plant a tree and do your "good deed" for the environment?
3. What should the average gardener do about their own moisture retention capabilities? If they feel their soil is too porous, what can they do to improve it?
4. What is green infrastructure? How can someone implement that in their garden or in their backyard?
5. How can people find out more about tree diaper?
In segment four Joey and Holly answer gardener's questions
Q: Our neighbors shared some cow manure that they got from a local farmer. It doesn't appear to be what they call green. I'm just thinking maybe adding over the top of our soil and tilling it in now. We won't plant until near the end of May. Some articles say to be really careful with manure, so just worry if it's a good idea to use - don't want to burn up our plants?
My other question is when using Cornmeal for Tomatoes, do you add to the bottom of hole when planting or sprinkle on top of soil around the plant?
A: That manure could possibly burn your plants and it looks still too fresh, you could put it in a pile and let it break down over summer and add it in the fall or wait til next spring. It seems too risky right now.
Cornmeal you just sprinkle around the base of the plants once its planted. On top of the soil.
