They make a wonderful slightly bitter pesto Melissa, or you can wilt them and serve them up not.
Go ahead...play with your food!

Alternatively, depending where you have them in the garden, they are good companions plants. Among other things, they help repel cucumber beetles, and are a trap plant for flea beetles.

Also, if you let them bolt, the seed pods, pickled, make a tasty addition to salads. Or they can sub for capers.

  Having had previous problems with cucumber beetles...that is huge advice!  The additional information, on the seed pods, is equally welcome advice as well!

  Thanks

Yes, thank you!

These were store-bought. I sauteed them, plus some "home grown" dandelion greens, with half a sweet onion, a stalk of celery, a radish, and a couple of chopped-up links of breakfast sausage. It was good!

Dan, when you plant your cukes, put a row of radishes about 4 inches outboard of the cucumbers on each side of the trellis. That'll help deter the little beasties.

  Next time I plant cukes...I'll do just that...thanks!  I was surprised at how quickly they take over...you find that you have a problem...then they're all over the rest of your crop! These are the same guys that took my squash before too, aren't they?

  thanks!

Technically, Dan, squash bugs and cucumber beetles are different critters.

Squash bugs tend to grow larger. I control them, primarily, by hand-picking and---pardon the pun---squashing them.

Both can be controlled with organic and synthetic insecticides if that's your proclivity.

The one that's a real bitch to control is the squash vine borer. It's larvae burrow into the stem, just above ground level, and the plant dies.

An interesting aside: Pioneer gardeners didn't have to cope with the myriad of pests we contend with, as most of them were imported from Europe and the Far East.

Another cutey we have a lot of here is the leaf footed shield beetle.
It is a prime candidate for squishing, too!
