      CUCUMBER (CUCUMIS SATIVUS ). So cool!! I never knew this! When a cucumber is taken from the vine let it be cut with a knife, leaving about an eighth of an inch of the cucumber on the stem, then slit the stem with the knife from its end to the vine leaving a small portion of the cucumber on each division and on each separate slip there will be a new cucumber as large as the first.

    Sedum Purple Emperor

    Great Groundcover: Sedum ‘Angelina'. It grows in sun or shade, with moist soil or dry, and spreads like crazy. It even plants itself from broken stems that blow around the yard! It’s a gorgeous yellow green, and gets yellow flowers in early summer, but they aren’t really attractive to bees. Works in beds, containers, or between pavers. It is semi evergreen, and gets a cool bronzy tip in the winter. Here you see it with hostas.
