Cucumber Seeds - The Rusted Garden: Gary Pilarchik

There are many different kinds of cucumbers. The picture covers 5 varieties. It is a good idea to plant several varieties of cucumbers. They will arrive at different times, bring different sizes to the table and have different disease resistance.

You can put 2 seeds in an 8-12 oz cup and start them indoors. As soon as they break the surface, get them in the sun.

Don't start cukes in seed cells. That is to little dirt for their roots and they won't transplant well.

Good Luck!
