And everything needs a lot more time. I'm still another week away from eating cucumbers I planted Nov. 1.

I learned to plant my vine crops somewhere else and save my precious sfg space for smaller plants and root crops. Peas and beans will still go in the sfg, since they climb up and don't take up much space, but cukes, zukes, melons, etc. are outta there. Evil or Very Mad

I thought mine would climb down from my tabletops, but they didn't want to do that, so they took over the tops. Shocked This year will definitely be different. I'M THE BOSS THIS YEAR! Razz

Me too.  Always plant them on a trellis.  But this year I am thinking about planting some on the ground so I can cover them with Tulle when the pickle worms show up.

My problems are cats and chickens, so I'll be growing them up this year, too. It also makes more sense for maintenance and harvesting. The less time I have to spend bent over, the better I like it. Cool

We are down to 1 t jar of Peg's bread and butter pickles we use them almost daily in salads and such.  The plan is to plant poinsett Cucs on 3- 4' trellises, one usually makes all the cucs we need for eating fresh and one usually yields several batches of pickles but we plan to step it up this spring since we are almost out.  The extras amke good gifts too.
