Yes, I grow a small garden in the summer. I do ok if the weather co-operates.
I have a problem with cucumber beetles with the pickling cucumbers I've been growing the last few years. They make lots of cucumbers but the beetles kill the vines after a coupla months. This year I'm going to grow some cucumbers that are resistant to the beeltes but they won't grow as many cucumbers in a short time but maybe I'll come out ahead with a longer season.
I get my seed from Gurney's.
I like bread & butter pickles in potato salad, tuna salad etc.
