Pegplant’s Post Gardening Newsletter always has a giveaway, an opportunity to win a free plant or gardening-related product. For the upcoming September 2023 issue of Pegplant’s Post, the giveaway is a gift bag of Kitchen Minis™ Quick Snack cucumber seeds; a decorative container; a trellis; one red, slotted kitchen spoon; a pen; a vegetable notebook; and a thermos/soup container.
Kitchen Minis™ are miniature vegetable plants – tabletop vegetables! In addition to the tomato and pepper plant, their newest edition is a cucumber. The cucumber can be grown outdoors in the summer or indoors in a container and does not need bees for pollination. The plant is a few feet high and produces cucumbers about 3 inches long. With these adorable cukes, you can eat fresh off the plant, add them to a vegetable platter, perk up your salad, or infuse water and cocktails. Kitchen Minis are available as plants or seed through mail-order catalog companies and seasonally at a few brick-and-mortar stores.
