Answer: Although it is sometimes possible to raise a late crop of cukes, you will need to do some careful figuring. The seeds will germinate quickly in the warm soil, but to determine if the plants will have time to produce a crop, begin by checking the variety's normal "days to maturity." Now add ten days to two weeks to this number compensate for the shortening days and cooler weather of early autumn. Finally, determine your average last frost date, and count back this number of days to see if you'll have a chance for a crop. Good luck!
