Cucumbers

Cucumbers

An essential for any Maritime vegetable garden. Fresh cucumber and tomato sandwiches are always among the highlights of my summer.

Growing: Cucumbers can be either direct sown or transplanted after the risk of frost has passed, for us that means planting out around the first week of June. I tend to to transplant mine, from an early May sowing in the greenhouse. They're hungry plants, and will appreciate all the compost and fertility they can get. Our major challenge is dealing with the Striped Cucumber Beetle, which can destroy entire plantings if left unchecked. I used to diligently go out to the plants at dawn to squish them; they're easier to catch while they're slow in the cool of the morning. I've recently found an even better technique; covering the young plants with lightweight row cover. The plants are most vulnerable when young, and I'll remove the covers before the plants begin to flower. Harvest starts in August, and the more you pick the more they produce.
