Our English cucumbers are grown in the greenhouses in the summer
After the soil have been tilled the plants get distributed
It doesn’t take long before they reach this size and the job of winding the plants clockwise around the twine extended from the ceiling have already begun.
This looks like a good size.
These guys are now ready to be picked
By the way we are one of the last growers to produce greenhouse English cucumbers planted in the ground as opposed to hydroponically.
These cucumbers have been wrapped in plastic and will soon be on their way to the Ontario Food Terminal
We also grow mini gourmet cucumbers and – as it says on the label – no need to peel just wash and enjoy.
Cucumbers galore – ready to be shipped
Cucumbers don’t quit – they keep growing – up to 16 feet or better – so Andrew now has to use a stepladder to get to them.
See the sachet – in the upper right hand corner – it contains the biological controls for the pests in the greenhouse.
One of the requirements of growing English cucumbers is to pass a Food Safety Audit – we have scored Gold Standard since 2012.
