I just started my garden in June, but I've already gotten delicious home grown veggies. Okay so not a lot, but one bell pepper and 2 cucumbers. To be honest, I started my garden a little later than I normally do.
I don't mean to brag. I'm totally excited - I love free veggies!
It's really not too late to put a couple plants in the ground and start a garden of your own. Especially a faster growing plant like cucumbers.
It's really easy. Put seeds in the ground, cover with dirt (preferably miracle grow potting soil) and add lots of water every day. Then let the sun do it's work. Just be warned cucumbers take up a lot of space and the vines grab hold of anything to spread out.
