Mini White Cucumber Seedlings

Ottawa city, ontario, canada

Last Monday, i mentioned that I put my seedlings for indoor germination. the tray was consist of asian hot pepper, bitter melon, and 4 mini cucumber seedlings for test germination. I think i have not check the set up in 2 days, and i was surprise to see these mini cucumbers pushing against the tray cover.

So, here are the organic mini white cucumbers -- 4 of them, ready to spring to life. :)

How awesome is this surprise to me? Lift my winter tired spirit! God is  good:)

The original source of these Miniature White Cucumber Seedlings was from Seed Savers Exchange, Decorah Iowa USA.

These were happy growing in a pot last year, and my daughter loves to pick it. About 2-3 inches at maturity and very watery crunchy. I recommend this cucumber for those living in apartments, a pot good for tomatoes are good for these cucumber. The trellis you use for the tomatoes does wonder for these mini cucumber.

My toddler Karlina enjoyed harvesting them..."note: let your toddlers wear gloves, cucumbers have prickles on them".

So, despite the snow covering my backyard, spring has arrived in my home, at least in my basement where the seeds are lovingly growing.
