1. Cucumbers are considered a quick crop because it only takes about 2 weeks to get a seedling ready for transplanting. Also, after transplanting, it should only take approximately 30 days to begin reaping, with harvest continuing for upwards of 3 months.

2. Cucumber plants need about 8-10 square feet of greenhouse space.

3. You can re-use your growing media for cucumbers because they adapt easily to high nitrogen levels.

Vegetables and Melons Outlook December 2010

0
No votes yet
Your rating: None

Fresh vegetables: Prior to the recent freezing temperatures in Florida, the outlook for fresh vegetables this winter indicated improved yields and supplies. At the same time, demand was expected to remain sluggish as consumers remain conservative, especially with regard to away from home meals. Assuming freeze damage is less severe than last January, the winter price outlook generally favors prices that are historically strong but average just below the freeze-affected highs of a year earlier.

OhioStateExtension.gifPickles grow on many soil textures, ranging from sandy loams and silt loams to clay loams. Select soils that are well-drained and high in organic matter. Wet fields are slow to warm and will result in poor yields. There should be a minimum of a 3-year rotation with other cucurbits. Do not plant pickles on land that has been treated the previous year with a triazine herbicide, such as Atrazine, Sencor/Lexone or Karmex.
