This year is starting out cold and damp. Last year at this time we were setting records with temps in the 90s! By this time last year my greenhouse cukes were growing strong with several 3" cukes on the vine. This year our baby cukes are still in the starter flat and haven't developed true leaves yet. Big difference. We have spinach, lettuce, carrots, broccoli and peas in the ground. All need protection from the birds at this stage. All are growing slowly due to cool feet.
