My first cukes are in. Yippy! I love to make cucumber martinis. Of course, they’re nice in salads too. My earliest varieties are blocky white North Carolina pickling cucumbers and Burpee’s Sweet Success.
This year I am growing my cucumbers (and melons) on trellises in my cold frame (with covers removed). I have an automatic sprinkler set up to give them 10 minutes of water every evening. They seem to like this.
