Cucumbers don't do well if roots are disturbed,
so it is best to plant seeds directly in the garden. Plant your seeds in soil,
2 to 3 weeks after last frost, when soil and air temperature is at least 60 F.
Thin so there are 4 plants per hill. Cucumbers can also be grown in rows
instead of hills, spacing 24" apart in rows 24 - 36" apart. Trellised plants
can be grown as close as 10" apart. Cucumbers only take 55 to 65 days to
maturity, so you can have multiple harvest by growing 2 to 3 weeks apart. Plants grow 1 ft tall and vines spread up to
Warning: Do not plant in cold wet soil
or you may experience poor germination!
Requires fertile soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or
straw around base of plant.
The soil should be continuously moist.
Water well during dry and hot spells. Make
sure plants get ½"
water per week.
Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when
transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.
Snip the stems with garden scissors when cucumbers are 2" long for pickling varieties. Harvesting
frequently encourages more production. Pick daily to prevent fruit from
becoming too large. Over ripe cucumbers will have a bitter taste.

Cucumbers are average in size but no other cucumber tastes as good to me. They are delicious and fairly productive with fairly thin skins. The flavor is uniformly sweet and mild with a distinct taste and I have never had a bitter one after growing them for years.
