Young Extension Director i I I Gardeners will soon be making, their first, cucumber plantings. Re- j member that cucumbers are one of, the warm-season crops. They can- j not survive when air and soil temperatures are low. You don't gain anything by excessively early planting, and sometimes early; planting of cucumbers leads to loss from a late frost. In central Iowa cucumbers can bo planted around May 15. You can plant them about a week earlier in southern Iowa and around May 21 or 22 in northern Iowa. * * * Soil preparation is important for cucumbers. Ben Vance, an extension horticulturist at Iowa Slntu College, says fertltlizers will help increase yields and fertility. Ho advises working manure into tin- soil before planting time, if possible. If manure is not available you can us some other type of organic matter. This might include grass clippings, leaves, compost, peat and the like. You could also turn under and work deeply tnio the soil at this time I 1 .-: to 2 pounds of a complete fertilizer such as 10-1010, 12-12-12 or the like. Then make a light application on the soil surface just before planting and work it into the top 2 or 3 inches. If your soil is rather low in fertility, Vance suggests an additional top- dressing around the plants when the runners are about I 1 - feet; long. At this time a cupful of one ; of Hie complete fertili/ers mentioned above could be placed around each cucumber hill and > worked lightly into the soil. Keep it away from the stems, Vance warns. It might cause injury to the plants. Some gardeners plant cucumber;, in rows with the plants spaced 1 to 2 feel apart in the rows and tin- rows -5 to T> feet apart. Other ^miners like the hill system with th" hills 3 to f> feet apart. Vance sa\> thai unless the soil is very p<iorl\ drained it is not necessary to makej mounds in which to plant tin- seed There are a good many varieties of cucumbers on the market. I'.ui Vance suggests that you first decide whether you want sheers, the slicing and pickling cucumbers, or both. Vance says good sliing varieties include Marketer, Straight-S and Burpoes Hybrid. For pickles, Chicago and National Pickling are both good. Vance says there is a new pickling variety that seems to be well liked by many Iowa homo gardeners. It is Ohio MR-17. This is a masaic-rosistant variety similar to National Pickling. NORTH MAIN STREET PHONE 7W The home gardener is likely to be concerned about fruit set as the plants come into bloom. You are likely to see most of the blossoms dropping and become worried about the failure of the plants to sol cucumber fruits. Vance says il is well to remember that a cucumber plant produces both male and female blossoms. The mail blooms supply the pollen and the female blossoms set the fruit. Male blossoms usually appear first and these naturally drop within a few days without set- ting fruit. This is natural. A little later the female blossoms will start appearing. If these were properly fertilized, fruit will set. * ti-. i. Cucumbers respond to a mulch applied about the middle of Juno. This mulch will help control weeds as well as keep the soil cooler and maintain a more constant moisture supply. Vance suggests a 4 or 5- inch layer of straw, 3 or 4 inches of ! grass clippings, 1'L' inches of saw- I dust, 2 inches of crushed corncobs or other materials as a summer | mulch. Some coarse materials such I as straw will cornelinu-s deplete • the nitrogen level of the soil. So i be sure to apply fertilizer as sug- | gesled above to overcome flceincy.
