Muncher cucumbers are happy and growing. I did not train them upwards this year, I just got lazy.  I’m happy to see that they don’t mind crawling and producing. These have come from cheap American Seeds packets purchased at local Walgreens. So far, I have picked about 10-12 of these, much of it enjoyed as Kakadi – Tomato koshimbir.

Two of tomato plants – Sweet 100 and Early Girl.
I bought these from local Rite Aid clearance mid-summer. While planting sweet 100 I accidently snapped the whole plant at root line, I knew I lost it but took a chance and planted it deep. Somewhere I had read that, tomato plants will produce roots if they are planted deep. Miraculously this tomato plant lived and producing. I did dig up out of curiosity and indeed I saw root branches right out of stem just above where it had snapped.
