I have received 2 new cucumber plants via a friend on Freecycle. the greenhouse has been looking a little bare as my early cucumbers were eaten and the peppers aren't doing well at all, so these new plants were most welcome. conducting a minor experiment with them - today is a flower planting day according to the bio-dynamic calendar so not a good day for a fruiting plant like cucumber but we have planted one in the greenhouse and kept one in its pot till the next "fruiting" day, to see if this will make any long term difference.according to the bio-dynamic theory, the one planted out shouldn't do as well but, on the other hand, the weather forecast for the next few days is for very hot so logically the one in its pot will suffer. we will wait and see.
