Cucumbers placed in outdoor garden.

24 May 2014 Cucumbers Placed in Outdoor Garden. Cucumbers placed in outdoor garden. They will be grown along the trellis, which keeps the fruit off the ground. By using this method harvest is about a month ahead of direct ground sowing. Three hills of Country Fair, and three hills of Cross Country.
