Posted February 03, 2018 06:23:54 Many people who grew up eating cabbage or cucumbers as children or adults are now enjoying them again after decades of neglect.
Now that cabbage, tomato and cucumber varieties have returned, how to get the taste of them back?
Here are five tips:1.
Buy the most expensive varieties.
Cabbage and cucurbits are the cheapest varieties, with their prices ranging from $4.99 to $12.99 per pound.
They are also the easiest to grow, so there is no need to buy a garden, garden equipment or a bunch of plants, just pick the ones that are most appropriate for your soil type and climate.2.
Keep them in the dark.
Even if you have a well-ventilated greenhouse, keep your plants away from direct sunlight, to avoid mold, mildew and disease.
Also, keep them out of direct sunlight and away from drafts.3.
Keep the water off your plants.
Keep water at or below the recommended level in your garden and garden sprinklers.
If you do not do this, your plants may get mold, and the mold may develop into hard, brown, yellow or greenish-green spots on the skin.4.
Don’t use pesticides.
These chemicals are toxic and will kill most plants, including cucumbers.
Avoid using them in your vegetable garden.5.
Don�t use pesticides indoors.
Planting cucumbers in containers or pots is safe indoors, but avoid using them outdoors, or any part of your garden, for that matter.
