I am growing a small amount of pickling cukes this year. A friend who
does pickling each year is going to show me how to do the whole
pickling thing. But I'm wondering about timing. My cukes are starting.
I just found, and I swear it wasn't there Monday, a 7 inch cucumber, a
little bigger than I wanted for pickling.
Can you store these for a while? I can't leave them on the bush cause
they'll obviously become huge.
Should they be refrigerated or some more preferred way? I don't like
cucumbers--they repeat on me terribly-- but I LUV pickles.
Obviously I'll want to harvest them till I have a nice amount--or the
plant peters out. Can't recall if this is a plant that keeps going all
season or produces most of its crop in a large flush.
