-Cucumbers have a much wider variety of uses than those which are commonly known. They can be used just like squash in stir fries and other pan dishes. They can be used like zuchinni in cookies and breads. Also if there is just too many for you to use before they go soft put them in the freezer. They are great blended into cold beverages from smoothies to margaritas. All cucumbers can also be pickled. Very young lemon cucumbers work well as do satsuki madori and armenian cucumbers.
– Mulch is critical, during hot weather, for keeping soil temperature down and conserving moisture. Spending a little time spreading out cardboard, woodchips, grass clippings or just about anything else you might think of will save you time watering in the long run. Not only that but your plants will be happier and therefore provide you with more food.
