Wilted cucumbers--replanting snow peas?

8fleetfeet(5)August 13, 2013

Hello,

This summer was my first vegetable garden, and I had mixed results. My two large cucumber trellises were loaded with cucumbers, but now one has gradually wilted and stopped producing. I pulled the plants out, and now I'm wondering . . . can I re-use the trellis by planting some snow peas there for the fall? Will the snow peas "catch" something from the wilted cucumbers that lived (and died) there?

Thanks!

Ellen

z5 means little as it is so big an area ...

find out when your first predictable frost date is..

read you seed package...

and find and compare days to harvest.. vs frost...

in my z5 MI.... third week of Oct could mean frost ...

and some of the fastest crops are right around 60 days.. or two months...

so 60 days from 8/15 is 10/15 .. which sounds perfect .. but as days start getting cooler.. things go into slow motion.. and you may or may not win ...

but you have nothing to lose for trying.. other than a few seed ...

i am just giving you the logic ...

go for it ...

ps: i gave up on cukes a decade ago.. because they simply wilt for no good reason .... they arent worth the effort.. IMHO ...

pps: i see this is in the pest forum.. and of course.. my lesson is a veggie lesson ... as noted.. plant a few.. who cares if prior disease is an issue.. whats a seed cost .. 3 cents ..????
