WWAAAAAAHH !!     :mad2:   :wallbanging:        Never pays to speak too soon.  Nasty frost last night, -3 by 10p.m.  Lost all my tomatoes and the cukes mentioned above.  Yes, I'll plant more cukes, (in about a week). I still have some tomatoes under grow lights that won't be ready for at least a week, so maybe next time---.

I planted cukes mulched with plastic and planted regular with out mulch, the mulched cukes we up in 3 days, took 4.5 days for the others just to crack the soil open.. I will not plant any other way now, I need to make a seeder that can seed small seed down through the plastic mulch accurately with out cutting slits in it. It warms the soil perfectly and holds the moisture in ,and diverts terenchle rains that would wash out small seeds too I love the stuff.
The advantages clearly out weigh the disadvantages ( pulling the stuff up in the fall lol)
