Test Garden Update: Debbie Leung, Olympia, WA

DebbieLeungWow, I think the ‘Little Potato’ cucumber in the previous post looks kinda cool! Unfortunately, no test cukes for me this year. The one I was trialing was weak from our cool and very wet late spring, then devoured by either slugs or bunnies. I replanted with another variety, a long Japanese variety, and planted one outside and one in my greenhouse along with the test watermelon ‘Shiny Boy’. A few days later, I let the chickens out to graze on the property. They found their way into the greenhouse and scratched out the cukes and watermelon! While I felt devastated, my great hopes dashed, I had to laugh since earlier this spring, the chickens’ scratching was welcomed as an attack on weeds. Lesson learned—greenhouse door closed before hen yard door opens!
