Cucumbers on squash root stock?
An article in a recent community garden newsletter here in Seattle described how one gardener grew cucumbers on kabocha rootstock; in other words, he grew kabocha (a kind of small winter squash popular in Japan) starts and cucumber starts, then grafted the cucumber starts onto the kabocha starts. According to the article, this gave the cucumbers much stronger roots and led to major production gains. I can't find out much about this online though, and I generally only see it mentioned as a way of making the cukes more resistant to disease/pests. Has anyone done this before?
