Gardening question of the day: How much light do cucumbers need?

Answer: Cucumbers require several hours of direct light on a daily basis. These popular green vegetables that often end up as pickles need at least 8 hours of full sunlight every day in order to get the largest and best yield possible. Cucumber plants will grow in shade but they only reach half-size or even one-third of the size they are when grown with adequate light.
