And are burpless and easy to digest. Grow heirloom. Beyond organic. Keep are heritage alive you cannot get heirloom on the store shelfs

So. When it's warm enough. Plant your seeds about a half inch to one inch down. Keep moist. They will be up in 4 to 6 days. So water when you drop seed. Then again about three days later.
Keep them weeded and regular watering when the cucumbers are setting fruit. They will need more water. And. They will need to be fertilized two or three times. For best results. Unless your planting on last year's pasture.
