cucumbers again

yesterday was a "fruiting" day on the bio-dynamic calendar, so the last cucumbers were planted out. the marketmore cucumbers I was gifted last week can be grown in the greenhouse or outdoors. considering the current weather,and hoping it continues, I have decided to try growing one outside. there was a slight problem with trying to find some space, so it's been planted in a space left by the lettuce pulled for lunch, just in front of the bean row. this area is a bit crowded but, as a curcurbit, cucumbers are the same family as squash and pumpkins so it should be happy as part of the extended three sisters planting.
