Scrapping the prickles from cucumbers under running water requires that you wear your plastic cleaning gloves to protect your bare hands from getting pricked. Use a soft brush to gently clean their skin and remove the spikes that could be a bit stubborn.
Cucumbers thrive in full sun and well-drained soil. It requires the amendment of organic compost manure. Start your seeds indoors or wait until the temperatures outdoors have warmed to at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit to plant them directly in the soil.
