Our Cucumber Dome
We planted our cucumber plants over our old climbing dome, and they is doing wonderfully! (we did this last year, but all of the plants died) The girls are reluctant gardeners, but they love to pick the cucumbers.
I planned on the cucumber dome being a fun outdoor playhouse for the girls, but it hasn't worked out that way at all. The cucumber plants are covered in bees, which is great, but O(7) is allergic, so we certainly don't want her to be in an enclosed area surrounded by bees! Also, I'd forgotten how prickly cucumber vines are...it would be no fun to play in a house made of them! So, next summer we may grow a more kid friendly dome, but this summer we are just enjoying our delicious cucumbers!
