First of all, I spotted few female cucumber flowers so immediately I perform hand pollination to them to make sure that it turn into cucumber. It gets very exciting when you know that you might get few more additional cucumber in your crop.
Remember last time I mentioned that for cucumber to thrive it is best to have bees around? You can sort of simulate the pollination through few techniques. Here is how it can be done.
I used the brush technique because my hand is to big and I'm too rough with the flowers. Every time I peel of the petal everything will go apart.
Beside cucumber there are few other things been going on in my small aquaponic grow bed. The Spring onion has flower and hopefully I can harvest it's seed later.
