I, as a gardener, have grown all of these with success. Beware of squash and cucumbers as they can produce more than you will have use, and can get woody if grown too large.

I grow my cucumbers along a fence and train the vines to climb it. I erect the fence each year in a different spot in my garden using steel fence posts and welded wire fencing, but a trellis or wires strung between posts would work as long as they are strong enough to support the weigt of the vines. By doing this I save ground space (vertical vs. horizontal growth) and find they produce more. It's also much easier to harvest as I don't have to move vines around to find the cukes (they give me a rash too). Happy gardening!

If you get too many grape tomatoes, wash and dry them, then put them in a bag in the freezer to toss in with your roasts, stews and soups to add a delicious flavor, add a few or a handful. Last summer, after having grape tomatoes coming out my ears, I came up with a not so healthy idea for grape tomatoes. I made an onion ring batter and added onion powder to it so it tasted like onion. I then dipped the grape tomatoes in it and lightly deep fried them. They were soooo good. They tasted like an onion ring with built in ketchup.
