I grow lemon cukes in a pot out on my back deck- they are the perfect cucumber for just eating plain. Most of mine never make it off the back deck as I usually just pick them and eat them on the spot (along with the green beans and sugar peas I also planted).

I just want to say WOW!! I ate half of that cucumber yesterday and the other half today. I absolutely love how fresh it tasted! So much different than the grocery store cucumbers.

Easy to grow! I am all in!
I saw one of your posts on the local board yesterday. Aren't we lucky! I'm in Greer. Love it here!

Did you grow anything else this year? Was bad with the lack of rain, and the bugs...they were terrible, and still are.

Hey! Just a few miles from me..

The cucumbers I grew were my very first I have some news! The same seeds that I grew that round lemon cucumber, there is a "normal" looking cucumber growing. It is the size of a large jalepeno pepper. Another one is growing (round) and is the size of a large cherry tomato.

This is the first vegetable I have ever grown. I wanted to see if I could do it and have something to eat later. So, next year, I will plant even more, now that I know they like the amount of sun and water I gave them.

I hand-water my cucumber plants (and all my other plants) everyday (unless they predict rain) because it has been dry here. Had I not watered them, I am not sure they would look so lush!

Mine are in pots too. I guess I wondered if they would survive to plant in the ground...If the cucumber plants go dormant in the winter, will they come back next Spring? or do I have to start all over again with new seeds?

Start all over... When the sun drops below a certain degree it tells the plants they are done. It has nothing to do with cold versus hot weather.
