When your cucumbers reach harvest size, don’t delay picking so the energy is distributed to the rest of the plant.

Growing cucumbers in an unheated greenhouse or high tunnel is challenging. If you follow these basic steps, you’ll enjoy an abundance of cucumbers for pickles, salsa, salads.

Of course we are in mid-season, but I want to start at the beginning so we’re all on the same page. This will set you up for Sweet Success (one of my favorite cucumbers, by the way) for next year.
