Cucumbers are a wonderful, healthy treat that can be eaten plain, with dressing, cut up and placed in pitchers to infuse water, put on salads, pickled or put in sauces like tzatziki
The Waterboxx works wonderfully for providing cucumbers plants the consistent water they need.
The Waterboxx shown here, with two cucumber plants but with NO manual watering after planting (only natural condensation and rainfall) produced 45 cucumbers by the end of the growing season!
The Waterboxx works well with raised bed gardens and still allows you to grow your cucumbers on string or wooden trellises.
The Waterboxx can decrease the risk of fungal diseases by minimizing splashback from the soil (where fungal spores reside). The Waterboxx in this capacity serves as a "fungus shield"
When converting a 4x4 foot raised bed garden to Waterboxx use, the space between the Waterboxxes can be used for annual greens (like lettuce), perennials (like the strawberries seen here), or for fast growing legumes (like peas or green beans).
The Waterboxx also blocks weeds from growing near your cucumber plant for a 10 inch radius.
