Plant Less Cucumbers and Replace Sugar Snap Peas of One Row
|Oct 1 2014 Garden B cucumbers, turnips, Roma tomatoes|
This year we grew so much cucumbers I'm finding it hard to know what to do with them. We planted 3 rows (each 1'x 5") of cucumbers this year, about 24 cucumber plants. I'm thinking I will replace one row next year with sugar snap peas. Sugar snap peas are more work harvesting, but my husband and I love adding them to stir frys and I love to snack on it with ranch dip. Last year we moved peas from our front yard garden to our backyard and they didn't do well. The squirrels ate most of the seeds planted. And since I've decide to scale back on gardening this year I decided not to plant any.
Plant Cold Season Transplants and Seeds Sooner
