How do I store my pickling cucumbers?

Don't store cukes in fridge....

If you don't have time to pickle your cucumbers the same day you pick them, keep them in a cool basement or root cellar until you're ready to start.
Do not store them in the fridge. Cucumbers begin to dereriorate at temperatures below 50 degrees.

Thank You for this tip. I am new to pickling and I was unsure how to keep my pickles ready for canning until I had plenty to pickle without wasting the solution.
