Kids holding pickles

 Learn to plant and grow cucumbers! 4-H members and their families can learn all about the various types of cucumbers and grow their very own at home. Your child will receive a pot with soil and seeds to help grow cucumbers throughout the summer in preparation for the "Pickle Project". Each 4-H member can sign up for the project with the end-of-summer goal to take those cucumbers and make pickles with them to submit to the Hillsborough County Agricultural Fair. This is a great project where your kids can journal about the cucumber's progress and learn about horticulture in a fun and friendly way.

Cost is free. Register by June 3, 2022.
