Cucumbers Starting to Pop. Hydroponics and Aeroponics plus.

Cucumbers are in between stems with flower in front.

I should be cutting out the crooked cucumbers but I feel I don't need them straight no pealing of
skin needed.
Cucumbers popped see the flower in front of cucumber. Watch future growth develop each day I will monitor growth. I will try to pick them at one pound. Friends are waiting they say they never tasted such great tasting seedless cucumbers. No need to peal these cucumbers.
These Cucumbers can take the heat sometimes 120 degrees with fan on. Trial crop in this hot summer in FL. Pond tank outside for cucumbers I have it open and later I will close with Hurricane shutters. Checked drippers this morning and I will be adding 70 gallons of Hydro mix tonight.
Cleaned tent this morning bottles are only different nutrients for leafs spraying. No pesticides are used.
Tomato's are having a hard time in heat cleaned all tanks this morning and added 50 ml. of
Nutrient's. This fall's crop should be good I wil be starting seeds at the end of month.

Last weeks 6 day Microgreens plus we ate some already hummy. All washed cleaned extra seeds go to the birds.
 June 16, 2012 started another Microgreen tray. All tray's are cleaned for a new tray of Microgreens.
 Watermellon small but good taste.
 My wimp pepper and one tomato pepper in doors to stay cooler. Very green and finally they seem to be coming back slowly.
Eggplant has a lot of nice flowers this morning whats up with this today. Maybe because I added extra nutrients from tanks left over and old batch. 
Swallowtail came to thank my wife  the other day. It followed her and kept coming up to her face. I have a lot of Butterfly's that are showing up.
They love the host plants we started. I have two Monarch catapillars cleaning off a plant seems like it is taking them over three weeks of eating plants.
