I transplanted 2 gourds, 2 or 3 each of Jack Be Little and Baby Boo pumpkins (I now don't remember which container is which), 2 Summer Dance cucumbers, 3 Cinderella pumpkins, 3 watermelon, and one cantaloupe. Also, the two lemon cucumbers I bought at the Fair, which you can see where so much larger than my own wimpy seedlings!

The Cantaloupe are teeny, tiny. The directions on the packet were to direct seed only, which I will, but in general cantaloupe can be transplanted, so I am trying both.
I find it hard to believe how much smaller watermelon plants are than pumpkins. The pumpkin plants look much happier in the ground than in the crowded peat pots. I may have purchased "Garden Blend Soil" but I am disappointed in it. The soil in the peat pots was hard as a rock, and in the garden crusts over on top. I dug in either chicken manure or a compost blend in all the beds and containers.
This is a shot of part of the garden. Behind the camera are the cedar raised beds, one 4 x 8, the other 4 x 4.
Notice Boo got in the picture yet again! Such a ham...
