This video covers a cucumber grow during the middle of winter. I am super happy now that I know I can produce cucumbers over the winter months. The medium used was regular peat moss with about 25% parboiled rice hulls. They were grown using a version of a hydroponic drip system watered 4x/day with Masterblend nutrient.

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent
Hi Brent. We had a high temp today of 8. Low tonight will be -4. I have 2 cucumber plants in my greenhouse. Got a half a dozen cukes off them and they both stopped producing male flowers. I was hand pollinating but all I was getting was female flowers. Don't know why. Maybe the unstable temps. Next time I'll plant a Parthenocarpic variety.
i sent you a photo on facebook of my apple cucumbers from my wifes fb
they are a different type of cucumber there white and taste sweet compaired to normal cucumbers …. would you like me to send you some to try?
there pretty good cucumbers you have. growing there i have a applecucumber growing in d.w.c way 👍
Hey there 🤠
Great video. I appreciate the time it takes to make a vid such as – well done ! Do you need to heat your greenhouse? Things sure look healthy .
Nice to have cukes at this time of year Brent. Hey out-takes? I have more of them per vid than I do good ones 🙂
It seems like yesterday that you started the seeds. Wow. They look so tasty but I have to admit I'm glad you didn't slice one and eat it in front of me as I'm looking at store bought at the moment lol! This sure was fun though :-)👍
Well done Brent. We are also having some cold weather. Not as cold as you, but cold for us. Have a great evening. Best wishes Bob.
Marvellous to have cucumbers in December.
Wow, I wish we had some nice ones like that! Those were just about perfect size. I was just talking to Tawnya yesterday about missing our cucumber and tomato salad we eat so much of in the summer. Yep, we're jealous again 🙂
That is fantastic!
Wow ! I find right person to looking forward grows food in green house and in winter season
Great job on the winter cucumbers👍👍 that plant is amazing looking also and super healthy. Looks like those leds are doing an amazing job at suplimenting the winter sun for your winter greenhouse. Thanks for sharing and as always Keep Building👍
Nice growth. I am going to order some of those seeds. The Divas I have planted the last few years have not done well. Gonna try your lettuce method as well. My lettuce is in rock wool in water and 3 months old and have barely grown. Gonna change my plan to something similar to yours.
WOW Dec. Cucumbers! I hate you! LOL No, you rock! I'm jealous. My day will come. Hope you had a great Christmas. I'll be watching you. O.O
Nice! Funny that I am eating one of my greenhouse cucumbers as I am watching this video. Never tried sweet success though!
