Where To Plant: you can plant varieties of cucumbers indoors that are well suited to flourish in containers, and that have been bred to grow and produce fruit without pollination.
When To Plant: Where summers are short and cool, start seeds indoors under bright fluorescent lights two weeks before your last spring frost.
How To Plant: Mix a 2-inch layer of rich compost into the planting site, along with a light application of an organic fertilizer. Thoroughly water the soil before planting seeds half an inch deep and 6 inches apart.
Added Benefits: Cucumbers are rich in two of the most basic elements needed for healthy digestion: water and fiber. Adding cucumbers to your juice or salad keeps you refreshed.
Tips: Pick daily, because under ideal conditions, cucumber fruits can double in size in just one day.
