Grow, Cook, Eat: Cucumbers

Location: Haggerty Center

From Spade to Spatula

Go from spade to spatula each month with Horticultural Program Specialists Gwen Montgomery and Cynthia Triolo. The series focuses on a different garden vegetable every month during the growing season and offers growing suggestions, planting tips, information on pests and diseases, new varieties and recipes.

To trellis or not to trellis is the question when we take a closer look at cucumbers in August and melons are the focus for September. We’ll have seeds, recipes and a tasting sample to get you motivated to get out in the garden and plant.

Each session in this series is eligible for 1.5 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.
