Just wanted to share this video by a really interesting Youtuber in New Jersey  (Mark's channel is "I AM ORGANIC GARDENING".   He does a nice job of documenting his experiments and findings on his small market farm.   Photography is excellent and he uses a microscope sometimes

I really enjoyed this video. He mentions a lot of great cucumber, polyculture, pollination, and permaculture info.

That video had new information for me. I didn’t realize the cucumber shape is related to pollination. Thanks for sharing it.
