The Lab: Hide-and-Seek with Giant Cucumbers

Aug 06, 2021

For those of you who remember when we built our Waffle Garden in the Spring, it's now in full swing! We planted each square bio-intensively to more efficiently use water and provide soil cover during our hot, dry summer. The resulting jungle of foliage means that sometimes you move a leaf aside and say, “Holy moly! How could I have missed seeing that giant cucumber?”
