Interesting way to grow cucumbers

Post  sfg4uKim on 2/16/2012, 9:05 pm

Shaped cucumbers grown in molds. I saw this on Pinterest and had to share.

LOL Kim, I only said it was "interesting". I was at a loss as to what else to say about it.

I think it would be fun for kids - bet they'd be more likely to eat it.

Reminds me of the square watermelons grown in Japan in molds because the pack and stack better. Very Happy

I just did a quick web search and "Vegiforms" is no longer making the molds. Sad

All is not lost though, I did manage to find 2 of their molds at The Caning Shop. $12.95 a pop for the "Garden Elf" (fit for pumpkins, eggplant, etc) & "Pickle Puss" (good on zucchini, squash, cucumbers, etc).

Just like our carrots will turn into an L shape when they reach the bottom of the box. Hmm. Seems like someone could create their own form and.... hey I see a future contest Like a Star @ heaven for this forum!

You can do something similar by putting the pollinated flower in a bottle and letting it grow.

Square molds for square foot gardening. All our cukes and zucchini's would stack in the crisper drawer so nice and neat, just like our tidy little gardens. Razz
