Default Fall Cukes and Squash

Once again I forgot about starting more cukes and squash so that when the spring planting ran out the new ones would be starting to set. So belatedly on July 2, I started two each of cukes and straightneck squash in pots and transplanted them out July 24th.

I can't remember who it was (Worth? Bill?) but last year somebody here gave me a tip about transplanting these plants that sometimes don't like transplanting. The tip was to use the pot to form the hole in the soil so that when unpotted, the plant would slip right into a same sized hole and never miss a beat. By golly, it worked like a charm!

Thanks to whoever gave me that tip!
