Frankish children help with the planting of cucumbers

Cucumber producer welcomes miniature gardeners in greenhouse

Cucumber producer André Busigel from Albertshofen has welcomed 23 miniature gardeners into one of his greenhouses. As part of the project ‘Europe’s Mini Gardeners’, the children assembled in one of its greenhouses, to see the planting of the vegetables with their own eyes. And so the small producers learned everything about substrates, irrigation and cucumber diseases.

First, the mini gardeners looked at the beneficial organisms in Petri dishes, after which the children were working with the cucumber plants. Meanwhile, the big producer told them about the third most popular vegetable in Germany. Because it is Busigel who can harvest about four million cucumbers a year. That's about 40 cucumbers from each plant, which are planted three times a year.
