Some tips for growing cucumbers. Remember cucumbers are heavy feeders so be sure to feed them often. I use a weak solution of miracle grow or the generic/store brand weekly. Cucumbers need lots of rich soil, lots of manure and heat and water.
Keep egg shells in open container in fridge. When the container is full, crush shells into small bits and sprinkle them around base of your plants. Sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails other bugs & adds touch of calcium to soil.
Cut with a knife, leaving an eighth of an inch of the cucumber on the stem, slit the stem from its end to the vine leaving a small portion of the cucumber on each division; each separate slip there will be a new cucumber as large as the first.
