June was on fire 🔥 🔥 🔥 

June was hot as hell 👹! We had daily temperatures of more than 30 degrees Celsius and no rain for several weeks. 

This means that I had to water my plants every single day. Also all the Japanese cucumbers 🥒 that I just planted have died beacause of the heat 😭!

Nevertheless, most of the stuff is growing well due to the wonderful weather and I am looking forward to a great harvest in September.

Pumpkins 🎃, tomatoes 🍅, Korean lettuces 🥗, Japanese corn 🌽, Japanese kokabu, and my white grapes, are all in great shape 💪👍!

Japanese cucumbers – Kyuuri (キュウリ)

 This is the 3rd year that we are planting this delicious cucumber. It is pretty easy to grow and it does not require particular care. Once the plant reaches 20cm of height it’s ready to be moved to the allotment. You will have to build a frame with a net, place it in a sunny area and water it frequently.
