70% of our members are growing cucumbers this year. We've created the ultimate guide to growing and enjoying cucumbers - whether you have an acre or an alcove. [Food Gardening Network Preview]( May 20, 2024  [Your Very Own Cool-as-a-Cucumber Growing Guide]( Welcome to the ultimate guide to growing and enjoying cucumbers - whether you have an acre or an alcove. Gain full access to this premium Gardening Guide—and an entire Library of food gardening advice—with a [Charter Gold Membership in Food Gardening Network!]( Dear Gardener, Of all the vegetables, the cucumber is the one that feels most like summer to me. I love tomatoes, too, of course. And the two go well together. Cucumbers, though, are mild and refreshing, much like a dip in the river on a hot summer day. They offer a delightful crunch when you bite into them, they’re incredibly versatile in the kitchen, and you can pickle them for even more culinary uses. Cucumbers are, in fact, the second most popular garden vegetable, behind only the tomato. They’re easy to grow and they’re incredibly good for you. That’s not the whole story, though. I have to share some dirt with you. Or more accurately, I have to share some information about dirt with you. Cucumbers produce more fruit when they grow in ideal conditions. They like a full eight hours of sunlight and warm soil – around 70 degrees. Cucumbers also prefer soil with lower levels of nitrogen. I know; this gets a little sciency, but it’s not that complicated. Bear with me for a minute. Too much nitrogen will give you lush, green cucumber plants, but you won’t get a ton of actual cucumbers. You can correct an imbalance with fertilizer, and the amount of nitrogen in your soil will help you determine what kind of fertilizer to use. You may need a fertilizer that’s balanced (like 8-8-8) or one that’s higher in phosphorus and potassium (like a 5-10-10). “Sure,” you’re thinking, “but how am I supposed to figure that stuff out?” Depending on where you live, you may have a few different options. Some Master Gardener programs and universities may test your soil for free or for a minimal charge. Alternatively, you can buy a DIY test kit for around $15. I don’t know about you, but that seems like a small price to pay in exchange for a daily harvest of crisp cukes. You can read more about Starting with the Right Soil for Your Cucumber Plants, The Right Sunlight for Your Cucumbers, and get answers to the big question, Should You Fertilize Your Cucumber Plants?, in The Cucumber Grower’s Guide.

I should also mention there’s a section where you can find out about different types of cucumbers. The cucumber Plant Profile features six favorite varieties, both heirloom and hybrids. One of them, though, doesn’t look anything like a “normal” cucumber. It’s so cool (pun intended)! Classy Cukes I don’t usually associate cucumbers with James Bond movies. Classic beverages, on the other hand, instantly bring to mind that sly smile, that sharp attire, and debonair charm. So what do the two have in common? Cucumber Martinis, of course! Cucumbers are so light and refreshing, and go so well in a vodka martini, shaken - not stirred. This recipe will have you sitting poolside at least in your heart, if not in reality. Don’t worry. There are plenty of family-friendly recipes in the The Cucumber Grower’s Guide. And we promise not to tell the kids how healthy cucumbers are. (Although, if you want to know, you can check out the Home Remedies & Health Benefits of Cucumbers or the Nutrition Facts about Cucumbers. Or you can move right to some of the internationally-inspired cucumber recipes.) You can enjoy all of them just by accepting your Gold Membership in The Food Gardening Network.

You’ll find out what to do when disease threatens your plants. You’ll read the cucumber Plant Profiles and discover the flavor profiles, plant characteristics, and best culinary uses for some of the most popular cucumber varieties.
