Oh, I know what I need to ask ya all. I doing alot of growing of the veggies this year as there more and more folks who need food. I have one handicapped elderly lady who besides tomatoes and beans asked me for pickling cukes. She has one of them old fashioned pickling crocks and an old handed down recipe that she enjoys using. She will need enough pickling cuke plants to fill the crock. I haven't seen it and have no idea how big something like that is.

I have to put all her plants into pots so she can put by her door for easy watering. About how many pickling cukes will one plant produce? About how many plants do I need to give her so she can fill that crock? Any of you picklers or canners have any idea?

From what I've seen, it takes a lot of space to grow picklers. I never had all that much luck getting a good-sized crop to bear all at once from just a few plants, so now I just grow the long and slender Asian cukes and slice them up for pickles

Wish I could help more.
