A section of the garden is open for planting after digging the last of my red potatoes and clearing out all the collards. The wife only planted pickling cucumbers and now wants to have slicing types.
I haven't planted cucumbers this late before, so I checked the U of F guide for north Florida planting. The chart has planting recommendation of Feb-April and Aug-Sept, suggesting I'll have problems with summer heat. Are cucumbers like tomatoes; subject to blossom drop from high night time temperatures? Ya'll know of other heat related issues that suggest planting in June as daytime temps settle into 92-96F and nights of 72-78F is going to be disappointing?
