We do 3 per foot.  trellis is the only way to go here in the soggy south.  We have found that cucs and okra are horrible transplanters and direct seeding works far better for us.

Cucumbers!  I'm happy with these even if they aren't all fully pollinated. Cucumbers - Page 2 Cuccum10

Now I can make my favorite summer drink.  In the evening, I add a shot of tonic for a "cuketail."Cucumbers - Page 2 Cucumb12

I like putting sliced cucumbers in a vinegar/water/sugar mix. Then refrigerate for a few hours before eating them.

I wonder if we can skip the juicing or blending step???  Has anyone cut the cukes into slices or chunks, frozen them spread out on a cookie sheet and then bagged them for the freezer?

Never tried that. Have air fried them, pickled them, made cucumber salsa, made cucumber jelly, made cucumber relish, and left them on neighbors porch, but I've never dehydrated them.

I did.  My daughter loves Vinegar and salt potato chips.  So I tried vinegar and salt cucumber chips.  She spit the first one out and would not eat another one.  But the dehydrating worked, she just did not like the vinegar - maybe I put too much on the chips before dehydrating.

Post  Yardslave 7/10/2021, 4:19 pm

My cukes aren't quite ready yet, but when I have 3 extra cucumbers, I mix with sliced Vidalia onions and toss them in a bowl of my Grandma's recipe:
 1 cup water, 
 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 
 1/2 cup white vinegar, 
  3/4 cup sugar,
  and 1 tsp salt


They go into the fridge for at least 2 hours, but they get better the longer they soak.


 You can omit the sugar if you're not into the "bread and butter" taste, and add some red pepper flakes and  diced garlic if you like the Kosher pickle taste).

Not too different than the recipe I got from my mother, Yardslave, except I prefer the red onions instead of sweet onions.

Cucumber Salad
2 or 3 cucumbers thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1 red onion thinly sliced
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh dill minced

Season cucumbers with salt in a large bowl and let sweat 1 hour. Drain liquids and toss cucumbers with onion slices and dill.

In small bowl pour in white vinegar and water and stir in sugar until dissolved and liquid turns clear.

Pour over cucumbers, onions, and dill. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight.

My mother used to eat cucumber and mayonnaise and black pepper sandwiches.  I can still remember the sound of her biting into the sandwich.  Cucumbers crunched as she bit in.

With the skin or without? I mean the cucumbers -- not your mother.

I am not sure but I don't think I ever saw the skins in the sandwich.  Cucumbers used to be heavily coated with something and I think we always peeled them.

Not necessarily an indicator of whether they were garden grown, or not. My mother always pealed cucumbers before either making a sandwich or Cucumbers & Onions out of them.  Not sure why, though, since I eat them right out of the garden with the skin still on them and they are delicious.

It does seem like the Persian thin skinned ones you can grow taste better, and are less bitter than the stable shippers of the grocery aisle.  And no wax!

Those little ones like the Persian are the only ones I grow now.  The ones I grow are also Parthenocarpic.
