Some people people leave the cucumber on the vine until it is huge and yellow. I personal don't do that. Or at least not on purpose. I just use the cucumber seeds that come out when I cut my cucumbers.

If you ever look at a cucumber seed that comes out of a cucumber, it has a mucus cover the seeds. The mucus comes off by fermenting it. I start to fermenting process today.

The start of this process is two put the seeds in water. You will see some seeds sink and some float. I just leave them there for now. I will leave the jar uncover and on the counter for 4-5 days
on the counter for the 4-5 days.
Come back in a week and seed how I get the bad seeds seprated from the good seeds and dry them.
Are you saving your seeds this year?
