Cucumbers and Zucchini

jrslick (North Central Kansas, Zone 5B)May 8, 2012

With the help of plastic mulch and a warm spring, we planted cucumbers and zucchini outside on April 1st (no joke). They are really starting to take off now. The squash will be blooming in a week or so and the cucumbers are starting to vine.

I also transplanted some zucchini I started on 3/20 in a movable tunnel on April 2nd. We harvested our first zucchini yesterday.

Now if I can just keep the bugs away!

Here are some pics.

Now (sorry I didn't realize they were so dark)

Inside Squash

This was the one we had last night. It was much bigger than in the pic.

Inside little cucumbers (got these out later than I wanted too)

Man, wish I had my setup like that. I need to get some plastic and make rows similar to that. Could reach close to 80 F next week in my area, and I have melons not planted yet!
