Why buy produce when you can grow it?

I pant succession plantings of cucumbers. My most recent plants are only a few inches tall. Will plant at least three more times between now and late September. For your area, surely you can get one crop between now and frost!

Easy to grow, gives a fairly quick harvest.

Squash is almost absurdly easy to grow, in my experience. I've never not gotten a harvest from it, even the time I planted it in the sand they'd used to fill in behind our brand new retaining wall. Weeds were not growing in that patch, but I got around 12 zucchini from my two plants there, despite always forgetting to fertilize.

So would a tomato cage work well as a trellis for the cucumbers? I don't have enough room to let them grow flat. I also was going to put some vegetables in pots. Could I put the cucumbers in there instead and have a trellis over them?

What about zucchini? Same thing?

I bought plants yesterday and have to plant them this weekend.

TIA!
