Cucumbers

Cucumbers like hot growing conditions and are not frost-tolerant. They seem to prefer full sun, but will grow fine in partial shade under upright crops like corn. Prior applications or side dressings of well-rooted manure or compost are beneficial. A number of diseases affect cucumbers, many of which can be controlled by swift removal of diseased plants. Overhead watering also encourages some fungal diseases. One packet = 1 g. = 30 seeds, sows 12 feet. 1 oz. = 1000-1300 seeds. CULTURE: Sow 6 seeds per foot in rows 2-4' apart, 1/2" deep and thin to 6-12" apart. IN hills thin to 2-3 plants per hill 6" apart, hills 2' apart. Can start indoors in peat pellets 2 weeks before transplanting. SEASON; Warm season, after last frost. SOIL: Rich, well-drained, pH up to 6.8. MIN. SOIL TEMP: 60 degree Fahrenheit. GERMINATION: 3-7 days. COMPANION PLANT: Beans, corn, peas, radishes, sunflowers. NOT aromatic herbs, potatoes. PESTS: STRIPED CUCUMBER BEETLE: Control by mulching heavily and with beneficial nematodes. Use rotenone or sabadilla for heavy infestations. BACTERIAL WILT: Spread by cucumber beetle.
