Too late for more cucumbers?

Q:

I was wondering if it would be too late to plant cucumbers, it seems like we still have 60-70 days left of good weather

A:

I hate to be a spoilsport, but cucumbers are very iffy this late. If you can find a bush variety with a maturity date of 60 days of less, maybe. All it will cost you are a few seeds. Might think lemon cukes, they always seem first in my garden.
