Join us for a deep dive into the world of growing cucumbers and squash. The cucurbitaceae plant family shares similar characteristics such as germination, plant growth, water requirements, common pests & diseases and seed saving. We’ll explore varieties to decide between growing a seedless, thin skinned, bush, pickling, slicer or Persian cucumber. And we’ll guide you to select winter squash varieties that are less susceptible to pest damage.
